COLORADO SPRINGS - Religious leaders and Olympic dignitaries gathered at the Chabad Jewish Center in Colorado Springs on Thursday night to light a giant Menorah made of ice.
One of the organizers told KRDO NewsChannel 13 the miracle of Hanukah is a great way to
spread hope in these times of global unrest.
“Hanukah’s all about spreading the flame. So it may be dark, it may be cold, but it's all about spreading a little warmth and excitement,” said Rabbi Moshe Liberow, director of Chabad Lubavitch.
The lights of the Menorah represent the eight nights of Hanukkah. The holiday celebrates the miracle of the everlasting oil that occurred during the re-dedication of the holy temple in Jerusalem.
Hanukkah runs through Saturday.
