Lightings a beloved tradition

Public Menorah lightings have been part of the winter holiday festivities since the seventies. President Carter and every subsequent president have participated in a Menorah Lighting at the White House. 

The message of the lights

The message of the lights of the Menorah is that ultimately acts of goodness will light up the darkness on a personal and global level. This is a universal message of hope and miracles and religious freedom that applies to all faiths and backgrounds. We can change the world one light at a time.

Sponsored by the Chabad Jewish Student Organization, the Chabad Jewish Center of Northern Colorado, and ASCSU.
