The city is holding a Hanukkah menorah lighting on the Green later this month.
Although this year’s Jewish holiday begins at sundown Dec. 18, West Haven’s annual lighting of the menorah will celebrate the second day of Hanukkah at 4:30 p.m. Dec. 19.
The lighting will mark the Jewish Festival of Lights, an eight-day commemoration of rededication of the Temple by the Maccabees after their victory over the Syrians.
The ceremony, led by Mayor Nancy R. Rossi, will include a Jewish blessing by Rabbi Schneur Wilhelm of Chabad of Milford-Hebrew Congregation of Woodmont.
The public is invited.
