South County celebrates Hanukkah

Hundreds of South County residents celebrated the beginning of Hanukkah Nov. 28 at an event organized by the Chabad South County Jewish Center.

Attendees enjoyed live music and traditional Hanukkah foods while children created menorah crafts. The crowd was also treated to an LED light performance.

The highlight was the ceremonial lighting of a giant menorah, with newly elected Morgan Hill Mayor Mark Turner lighting the middle flame.

Rabbi Mendel Liberow, director of Morgan Hill-based Chabad South County Jewish Center, spoke to the crowd about “the importance of being a candle to light up the darkness around us.”

The festivities took place at the Downtown Morgan Hill Amphitheater at the Community and Cultural Center.
