Faith focusBaybrook hosting Chanukah celebration

Posted: Saturday, November 30, 2013 12:10 am

Baybrook Mall will have its annual Chanukah celebration at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the intersection of the Sears and Macy’s corridors. This year’s party will feature the lighting of a uniquely designed Menorah, hands-on crafts, delicious hot latkes, doughnuts and chocolate gelt.

“The holiday of Chanukah celebrates the victory of religious and national freedom in the face of oppression,” said Rabbi Yitzchok Schmukler, director of Chabad of the Bay Area. “By kindling the Menorah, we are reminded that just as a little bit of light has the power to dispel much darkness, so too, when we engage in doing even small acts of goodness and kindness, it helps to create a ripple effect that betters the world. We invite everyone to join with us in celebrating this universal message.”

The event is free and open to the public. Baybrook Mall is at 500 Baybrook Mall, in Friendswood.
