TALLMAN, NY – To celebrate the 2019 Hanukkah season, Chabad of Suffern designed a giant gumball menorah. The menorah, standing 11 feet tall, is constructed of over 7000 gumballs. This Menorah was designed and built by Chabad’s very own Hebrew School students. It is being displayed for public viewing at the Tallman Shoprite for this holiday season.The event also featured a one-of-its-kind Fire Truck Gelt drop.

Chabad Jewish Center of Suffern has been hosting the public menorah celebration in the Suffern area for 11 years. However, weeks after the horrific anti-Semitic shooting in Jersey City, a record number of Jewish participants attended. Community members were eager to stand together for the first night of Chanukah commences on Sunday, Dec. 22.

“Chanukah is the celebration of light over darkness,” said Rabbi Shmuel Gancz, who directs Chabad Jewish Center of Suffern. “The darkness that we, as a nation, have been experiencing must be fought with light and goodness.”
