The 12th annual Hanukah Festival, organized by Chabad MidPen of Redwood City, was celebrated Dec. 5 in Courthouse Square. The attendees enjoyed food, entertainment and games which were available preceding the lighting of the menorah by State Senator Josh Becker. The menorah was wrapped in handmade scarves, mittens and hats to be given out to homeless people.
“Hanukah is a beautiful holiday,” said Rabbi Levi Potash. “It represents religious liberty and tolerance for all. We light the menorah which is light, and light is a symbol of goodness, wisdom and kindness.”
