The Festival of Lights, with public menorah kindling ceremonies each night of the festival begins this coming Saturday evening, December 24, at Chabad’s Goodness & Kindness Centre situated at 8 Stella Street in Sandton.

Chanukah, a celebration for all time is highlighted by the kindling of the menorah each night of the holiday. It is a holiday that enriches our lives with the light of tradition.

“Today, we rededicate ourselves to making this world a better and brighter place. Chanukah also propagates the universal message that ultimately good will prevail over evil, freedom over oppression and light over darkness.”
