WESTBOROUGH – Chabad of the Boroughs marked the fifth night of Hanukkah with a menorah lighting on Monday, Dec. 11, in the Westborough rotary.
About two dozen celebrants joined Rabbi Mendel Fogelman, co-director of the Chabad based in Worcester, in lighting the menorah.
“It’s time to give more light to the world,” he said.
Fogelman asked celebrants to pray for the release of the hostages being held by Hamas militants.
He also announced that a permanent rabbi will be named “soon” to lead the Chabad in Westborough.
In addition to the menorah lighting, attendees enjoyed latkes, doughnuts, music and chocolate gelt.
Several members of the Westborough Police Department were on hand to help pedestrians cross to and from the rotary.
