Public Menorah Lightings


One of the unique mitzvot related to the celebration of Chanukah is that of conducting public Menorah lightings in order to publicize the miracle of the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil. To this end Bais Menachem sponsors several public Menorah lightings, including one on Wilkes-Barre's Public Square. The entire family is invited to join us for music and refreshments as we display our Jewish pride in downtown Wilkes-Barre.


Community Chanukah Party

Each year Bais Menachem sponsors a community Chanukah party for the entire family. Past Chanukah parties have been held at locations such as the Woodlands Inn and Resort and the JCC of the Wyoming Valley. The party features great food, music, lots of dancing, and activities for the children. Individual menorahs are also available for those that wish to light their own.
