Main Street Vineland will join the Jewish Federation of Cumberland, Salem & Gloucester Counties in the celebration of Hanukkah—the Jewish “Festival of Lights”—with a menorah-lighting—“Hanukkah Live.” The lighting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5 on the 600 block of Landis Avenue, across from the Landis MarketPlace. The lighting of the menorah, the largest in South Jersey, is organized by the Jewish Federation and the ceremony will include music, dancing, potato latkes (pancakes), and fellowship. Main Street Vineland has incorporated this Vineland Jewish holiday tradition into its schedule of events for the holiday season. The menorah lit in downtown Vineland was constructed by Kane Steel, of Millville, NJ, in 1994. It has been a fixture over the years at various Vineland locations for Hanukkah and has been situated for the past three years at the site of the former Precision Watch and Clock building on the 600 block of Landis Avenue. The business was owned by the late Leon Zylberman, a Holocaust survivor. For more information call 696-4445.
