This year, the Boulder County Center for Judaism has selected former concierge and marketing director for the Boulder Jewish Community Center, Michael Rosensweig, as the Lafayette Lamplighter to kindle the Giant Menorah on the last night of Chanukah.
The story of Chanukah begins in the year 167 BCE, when a Greek Macedonian kingdom centered in what is today Syria had tried to outlaw the Jewish religion in Israel and replace it with Hellenistic culture.
