Dozens Watch Lafayette Menorah Lighting

Lafayette celebrated Chanukah 2018’s eighth night with sufganyot, lighting all eight flames, and songs on Sunday night.  Dozens of Lafayette-area Jews joined Rabbi Pesach Scheiner and Rebbitzen Chany Scheiner from Boulder County Center for Judasim for 2018/5779’s last menorah lighting event.

Michael Rosensweig, former Community Concierge and Marketing Director for the Boulder JCC and a Lafayette resident, was honored as this year’s Lafayette Lamplighter, and did a great job lighting the shamus and all eight flames.
