LOGAN SQUARE — A 9-foot menorah will be erected near the Illinois Centennial Monument, commonly referred to as the Logan Square monument, for the neighborhood’s first-ever large-scale Hanukkah event.
Chabad Logan Square is behind the family-friendly event, set for Sunday, the first night of Hanukkah.
The event will kick off at 4 p.m. with a menorah lighting ceremony. Afterwards, there will be a community-wide celebration featuring music and food including latkes and doughnuts, as well as children’s activities. RSVPs are encouraged.
The Logan Square event is one of more than 15,000 large public menorah lightings being held around the world, according to Chabad Logan Square.
The events are part of the worldwide Hanukkah campaign, which launched in 1973 and aims to publicize the story of the Hanukkah miracle, according to the group.
