Ice menorah carving Sunday on Sherman Green

The public is invited to the lighting of an ice menorah on Sherman Green on Sunday, Dec. 21, at 4 p.m.

Starting at 3:30 p.m., a team of ice sculptors will use chainsaws and carving tools to carve blocks of ice into a six-foot menorah. The event also will feature holiday refreshments, music and dancing.

Chabad will offer all children free holiday crafts and refreshments at Magic Beans, 1530 Post Road from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. 10% of all sales will be donated to Chabad of Fairfield.

Chanukah, a celebration for all time, is highlighted by the kindling of the Menorah each night of the holiday. “It is a holiday that enriches our lives with the light of tradition” said Rabbi Shlame Landa, director of Chabad of Fairfield.  “In ancient times our ancestors rededicated the Temple in Jerusalem with the Menorah. Today, we rededicate ourselves to making this world a better and brighter place.”

In its Chanukah outreach campaign, Chabad of Fairfield joins thousands of Chabad centers across the globe that are staging similar public displays of the Menorah and its symbolic lights. From Australia to Africa, Columbia to Hong Kong, New York City’s Central Park to the White House lawn, hundreds of thousands will experience the joy of Chanukah.
