Community Chanukah Party in Stuart

Community Chanukah Party in Stuart

On a gorgeous Florida evening the Chabad of Martin and St  Lucie sponsored a Menorah Lighting with our beloved St Lucie River as a backdrop.

There was plenty to do at  this family event.  Face painting and other stations set up for the kids and food. I was very pleased to meet a nice man name Baruch from Tel Aviv who made the most delicious falafals that I have eaten had since I was in Israel ( a long long time ago). I took the time to go back to my car and enjoy every bite. In solitude. That’s how good it was.

There was a very talented band that booked itself as the only Orthodox Folk Band. There was a  giant dreidel.

 

The public lighting of the Menorah is an important event. Chanukah is an important inspiring holiday.

Rabbi Shlomo Uminer said “This is a community wide celebration to come out and celebrate and light the menorah publicly. We celebrate freedom from oppression, light over darkness and freedom of religion.” Indeed. Words that I needed to hear.

Stuart Mayor Eula Clark was on hand to not only give an inspiring speech but joined in the spontaneous dancing. I can tell  you that Mayor Eula  does a mean hora.

It felt like a joyous celebration.

It felt like home.
