OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma City’s Chabad Community Center for Jewish Life and Learning will host a Hanukkah community event to kick off the vacation at Scissortail Park on Sunday evening.
The Scissortail Lights event kicks off at 5 p.m. on November 28.
The program is free, family-friendly and open to the public.
âAt a time like this, when we are bombarded with negative and divisive news, now more than ever, we can all benefit from the Menorah message of the victory of light over darkness; an uplifting message that we badly need today, âsaid Nechoma Goldman, Co-Director of the Center.
The evening will feature 15 foot menorah lighting, a musical performance by Kyle Dillingham and Horseshoe Road, a fire and light show, traditional food, goodies for the kids, holiday blessings, Dreidel Man, and more .
âA little light can dispel a lot of the darkness,â says Rabbi Ovadia Goldman, co-director of Chabad. “We are delighted to bring the light and warmth of the Hanukkah lights to the entire community, with the help of our good friends Jasmine and Melvin Moran and Asbury Wellness Pharmacy.”
The center will be joined by Senator James Lankford, Congresswoman Stephanie Bice, OKC Mayor David Holt, Police Chief Wade Gourley and other civic leaders at the annual event.
