State College Menorah Lighting to Be Held Tonight

The State College community will gather tonight at 5 p.m. in front of the Municipal Building for the annual Menorah lighting ceremony and Chanukah celebration.

Everyone’s favorite mayor Elizabeth Goreham will be on hand to light the nine feet tall Menorah for the 12th annual event. The Menorah lighting ceremony will be followed by a Chanukah celebration in the lobby with hot latkes, live music, chocolate Chanukah money, crafts for kids, free menorah’s, a raffle for a silver plated menorah, and more.

The event has been attended in the past by other notable Jewish people in the Penn State community, including Hall of Fame volleyball coach Russ Rose — although he might be a little busy tonight. It should be a good time for all that decide to come out tonight for the beginning of Hanukkah.
