Public menorah lightings to be held in Westborough and Shrewsbury

Menorah_RLJR2Westborough/Shrewsbury – Chabad of Westborough will sponsor its annual Public Menorah Lighting and Chanukah Celebration in Westborough center at the rotary Wednesday, Nov. 27, at 6:30 p.m. on the first night of Chanukah, and at the Shrewsbury Town Common, Route 140 and Main Street, Sunday, Dec. 1 at 4 p.m.

The lighting is scheduled to still be held this evening in Westborough in spite of the storm that is expected to batter the region according to Dvora Green, Chabad spokesperson and coordinator. However, another public lighting will be held on the last evening of Chanukah, Wednesday, Dec 4 at 6:30 p.m. as well for those who cannot make it to the one tonight because of the inclement weather.

Refreshments will be available, including Chanukah gelt (chocolate coins), doughnuts, and hot cocoa. Dreidels will also be given out. Town selectmen and other dignitaries will participate in the festivities. Admission is free and open to all members of the community.

Both locations will display a nine-foot menorah throughout the Chanukah holiday, which occurs from sundown Wednesday, Nov. 27, through Thursday, Dec. 5.

For more information, call 508-366-0499 or email Dvora@chabadwestboro.org.
