At the World's Largest Menorah every night of Chanukah is celebrated with live music, hot latkes, and gifts for the children.

The World's Largest Menorah stands at a whopping 32 feet tall (the maximum allowed by Jewish law),  and has been towering over Grand Army Plaza since 1985. The annual Menorah lighting ceremony is a must for Jews and non-Jews alike.

With assistance from a Con Edison cherry-picker, Rabbi Shimon Hecht accompanies community leaders,  philanthropists and special guests in lighting this humongous Menorah.

The lighting of this menorah takes place at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 24, 6:00 p.m. on Sunday December 25 through Thursday, December 29, 3:30 p.m. on Friday, December 30, and at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 31.
