Ed Victor lit the giant menorah in Louisville Thursday night as a crowd watched and sang the prayers.  The Skating Dreidle was out on the ice, there were warm drinks and sufganyot to go around as well.

Thanks as always to Rabbi Pesach Scheiner and his wife, Chany Scheiner of Chabad Lubavitch of Boulder County for the menorah and logistics, and the Boulder JCC for co-sponsoring.

Here are more pictures from the event from photographer Bruce Shaffer:
