Huge Hanukkah event coming to Celebration Square in Mississauga
The holiday season is special for a ton of reasons, but one of the best things about December is the fact that people from a wide array of cultures and faiths can come together to celebrate various holidays together.
Celebration Square, which is currently home to Mississauga's best-known Christmas tree, will soon be the site of a six-foot-tall menorah.
Mississauga's Jewish residents might be happy to hear that the Chabad Jewish Discovery Centre (JDC) will ignite a six-foot Hanukkah menorah at Celebration Square on Sunday, Dec. 22 at 4:00 PM. The lighting will be followed by a Hanukkah celebration.
The ceremonies are open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
The menorah lighting will be preceded with greetings from Mayor Bonnie Crombie. Following the lighting ceremony, participants can enjoy traditional Hanukkah foods (think hot potato latkes and doughnuts), Hanukkah music, live entertainment and crafts for kids.
The event is free to attend, but attendees are encouraged to bring along a non-perishable food item that will be distributed to those in need.
