Ceremony brings light to 15-foot menorah in downtown Gables
The 10th annual Coral Gables Festival of Lights Menorah Lighting Ceremony was held Thursday evening, Dec. 13, at Fred B. Hartnett Ponce Circle Park.
Dozens of participants enjoyed music, latkes, jelly doughnuts, dreidels and gelt, while children had fun at rock climbing, Hanukkah crafts, a bounce house and more.
Rabbi Avrohom Stolik of Chabad of Coral Gables continued this celebration that he and Spencer Aronfeld of Aronfeld Trial Lawyers established.
Special guests, including Coral Gables Mayor Jim Cason and Commissioner Maria Anderson, took turns lighting the eight candles of the 15-foot-tall menorah, which will remain at the park through the holiday season.
