CHICAGO — A Jewish community group is lighting a 9-foot-tall Hanukkah menorah to honor Eliyahu Moscowitz, who was slain last month in Rogers Park.
Chabad of East Rogers Park will remember Moscowitz by dedicating its large menorah to his memory this year, according to a news release from the group. The group will start lighting the menorah on Sunday night, when Hanukkah begins.
A Hanukkah celebration with Mocowitz’s family will start at 7 p.m. Dec. 3, the second night of the holiday, at Loyola Park. The event will include lighting of the menorah, live music, a raffle, traditional food like potato latkes and doughnuts, and singing.
Hannukah ends the night of Dec. 10.
