World’s largest menorah lit in NYC

World's largest menorah lit in NYC on first night of Hanukkah

New Yorkers and visitors from around the world gathered outside the Plaza Hotel Sunday to mark the first night of Hanukkah with the lighting of the world's largest menorah. The hundreds in attendance gathered with a more somber tone in the air, as the lighting came just more than a month after 11 Jews were killed in a mass shooting during a Shabbat service at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.
