Photos: Menorah Lighting Marks Start of Chanukah

Chanukah celebration at Huntington Town Hall includes songs and food.

Wet weather sent the festivities indoors but couldn't dampen the enthusiasm of those  gathered at Wednesday night to light a menorah on the first night of Chanukah. 

Candles were lit, holiday songs were sung and jelly donuts were enjoyed by all. Rabbi Asher Vaisfiche of Chabad of Huntington led the lighting of the giant menorah.

Chanukah, which is also known as the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day holiday commemorating the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem during the 2nd Century BC.
