Menorahs on Parade

Menorah Collage 1

Last Thursday I was checking out the windows at Bergdorf Goodman (pictures forthcoming) when all of a sudden - traffic stopped, sirens sounded, recorded music piped up and a parade started down 5th Avenue!

Many, many, many minivans and cars with menorahs strapped to their roofs (rooves?  no, roofs) drove by.  Passengers yelled "Happy Hanukkah!" from car windows, occasionally handing out boxed menorah sets.

The parade seemed to be put on by Chabad (you can see a couple of their 'mitzvah tanks' in pics above & below) which often organizes events around the city during Jewish holidays.

A festive few minutes of the Festival of Lights.  So glad I was in the right place at the right time to see it.
