Westborough – On a beautiful clear evening, members of Chabad of Westborough celebrated the first night of Chanukah Dec. 6 with the lighting of a nine-foot public menorah at the town’s rotary.
For Dvora Green, Chabad spokesperson and coordinator, the message of the menorah is especially relevant this year.
“In present times we have witnessed a proliferation of darkness, intolerance and hatred. What better way to respond than to stand up tall and proud and celebrate the light of the menorah which symbolizes freedom from oppression and freedom of religious expression, the very values upon which our nation was founded,” she said. “The enduring lights of the menorah remind us that good will triumph over evil, just as light dispels the darkness.”
