Chanukah celebration now in its 10th year in the Old Mill District
Join Rabbi Yitzchok Feldman and the Chabad of Central Oregon on Thursday, Dec. 10, for the 10th annual Menorah Lighting in the Old Mill District.
This year’s festivities, like many others, will be a bit different due to COVID-19. The lighting ceremony will be held in the westside parking lot across the Deschutes River from the shops in the Old Mill District, near the Hampton Inn. Spectators will be able to view the menorah from their cars at a safe social distance.
After the initial lighting ceremony, which is expected to start around 4:30 p.m., the menorah will be transported across the river to Center Plaza in the Old Mill District, where it will remain lit for the duration of Chanukah.
During the main event there will be light music, an inflatable dreidel, and a large screen showing Chanukah videos. The Rabbi and his wife will be passing out a Chanukah treat bag to each car.
This event is free to the public and all faiths are welcome.
