Menorah Lighting & public Art  

The annual Hanukkah-themed celebration in Chelsea Square is expanding this year.

 

On Second Street there will be an illuminated mobile art display called "Brighter Ignited." Artist Tova Speter, commissioned by JArts Boston, led workshops across great Boston inviting people to reflect on how they show up for the causes they believe in.  The individual elements created in these workshops are brought together in a massive, interactive "Lite Brite" type display that is touring across eastern Massachusetts.  At Temple Emmanuel Chelsea hosted one of those workshops and happily welcomes the finished artwork at our menorah lighting event.

All are welcome to gather with members of Tobin Bridge Chabad, Temple Emmanuel and Walnut St Synagogue for the lighting of the public menorah with song, prayer and refreshments.
