TUXEDO – On December 26 a crowd gathered in Tuxedo to celebrate the lighting of the 5th night of Chanukah with a celebration sponsored by Chabad. The shamash was lit by Tuxedo Town Supervisor Ken English. Rabbi Pesach Burston led a menorah meditation and memorial honoring the victims of Jersey City.   Chana Burston spoke of the significance of the 5th candle: The night when light outshines the dark (unlit) candles. Following the lighting, a festive reception was held in the community room with latkes, doughnuts, hot cocoa, crafts and schmoozing.
