Happy Hanukkah 5779 (2018) from Michigan

Happy Hanukkah!  I begin the celebration with WOOD-TV reporting Grand Menorah lit to mark start of Hanukkah in Grand Rapids.

Faithful gathered at Grand Rapids' Calder Plaza Sunday afternoon to light a giant menorah and mark the beginning of Hanukkah.
Now to move across the state to Detroit, where WDIV uploaded a feature segment on Hanukkah Traditions and celebrations.

Jewish community in Metro Detroit prepares for Hanukkah.
Speaking of the Menorah in the D, here is the WXYZ feature on the holiday and the event, which also shows how to make sufganiyot (Hanukkah donuts) and describes more about last night's menorah lighting.

That's the fun part of the holiday.  WXYZ also reported on the serious part of the observance in Menorah in the D to pay tribute to victims of the synagogue massacre.

The Menorah in the D ceremony in Downtown Detroit for Hanukkah will pay tribute to the victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre.
Here's to the menorah lighting shedding light in these dark times.
