Many Chico residents gathered tonight to see the lighting of the Hanukkah menorah. The Chabad Jewish Center hosted the celebration at the Chico City Plaza marking the seventh day of Hanukkah. The Yule Logs, a local band, performed Hanukkah songs.

Local Jewish leaders say they host this event to help teach others about the holiday. “The miracle of Hanukkah and to teach the lesson of Hanukkah… that with a little bit of light, we can dispel a lot of darkness,” said Rabbi Mendy Zwiebel.

There was free hot cider to keep people warm and also traditional Hanukkah food.
