Boulder County’s Largest Menorah Lights up the Night Sky
LAFAYETTE, CO: Jewish tradition teaches that no matter how dark it gets we must strive to bring light. No holiday celebrates this concept more than Chanukah, which requires lighting one more candle each night until we have filled the eight-branched menorah or chanukia and brought light to the darkness.
A relatively new tradition, each year more and more people brave the variable weather to come together to watch the lighting of Boulder County’s Largest Menorah in Festival Plaza in Old Town Lafayette.
This year’s entertainment includes a special acrobatic performance by Sven Jorgensen and sufganiot (traditional jelly doughnuts). No reservations are required for this special event. Just bundle up and join the party in Festival Plaza in Old Town Lafayette on Wednesday night, December 28th at 5:00 pm.
The annual lighting of the giant menorah is sponsored by the Boulder County Center for Judaism, with JEWISHcolorado and the Oreg Foundation, without whose assistance this event would not be possible.
