Grand Army Plaza Menorah Lighting

The Largest Menorah in Brooklyn has been towering over New York since 1985 and is a must on everyone’s calendar, Jews and non-Jews alike. Every night of Chanukah, thousands celebrate with the accompaniment of live music and hot latkes for all. Special gifts are distributed to every child. With the assistance of a 60-foot boom lift, Rabbi Shimon Hecht, accompanied by community leaders, philanthropists and special guests light this humongous Menorah. TLM is a leading symbol of Chanukah, publicly reaffirming the celebration of the Jewish community’s freedom, inspired by the Maccabean victory of right over might and light over darkness. The Menorah lighting celebration and concert are all free of charge.
