Wellesley Weston Chabad Grand Menorah Lighting – December 20

The Wellesley Weston Chabad Grand Menorah Lighting will take place on Tuesday, December 20 at 5:30 pm in front of the Weston Town Hall. The night will include hot chocolate, jelly doughnuts, chanukah songs (I did not make up this order; this is on the marketing brochure), gelt drop, prizes and community togetherness.

I was unaware of the Gelt Drop tradition which according to this site is a “newer tradition in the Jewish faith, whereby gelt – usually in the form of chocolate coins wrapped in gold or silver foil, is dropped from a high place (often the top of a fire ladder) in a public place.”

And now I see the use of our ladder vehicle. Cool.

Happy Chanukah!
