6 pm to 8 pm in Chelsea Square
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 Revealed." Artists Tova Speter and Emily Bhargava focused on sharing the light and vibrancy we each have to offer. Commissioned by JArts Boston and incorporating artwork created by students and local partners throughout the Greater Boston area, this large-scale beacon reveals the inner strength and bright spirit contained within our community. The celebration of Hanukkah centers around sharing the miracle of light amidst darkness and the triumph of freedom prevailing over persecution. By bringing communities together to create art and by publicly showcasing their collaborative work, the work seeks to not only highlight the past miracle of Hanukkah, but also to reveal and acknowledge the present-day miracles, inspiration, and collective strength found in our Boston community.
At 6:30 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.
