(Courtesy of Chabad of Passaic County) The Chabad Center of Passaic County recognizes the crucial importance of bringing Chanukah’s message of light and hope to Wayne’s Jewish community. After last year’s amazing success, the Chabad Center will be making its second annual Car Menorah Parade on Monday, November 29, at 5:30 p.m., departing from the Chabad Center at 194 Ratzer Rd. in Wayne, traveling to Wayne Town Hall, culminating in the annual township menorah lighting.
“This year we are inviting the community to participate again in bringing Chanukah to the streets of Wayne,” said Rabbi Mayer Gurkov of the Chabad Center. “The Car Menorah Parade is a perfect way for Wayne’s Jewish community to show our Jewish pride and add to the celebrations of Chanukah in an innovative way.
The parade route will travel via the main thoroughfares of Wayne, including Hamburg Turnpike and Valley Road in a unique Chanukah celebration promoting holiday awareness and bringing a message of light and hope to Wayne.
The Car Menorah Parade is part of the worldwide Chanukah campaign launched by the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, in 1973. The campaign highlights and encourages the central theme of the holiday—publicizing the story of the Chanukah miracle and the victory of light over darkness, a message of hope greatly needed today.

Chabad-organized menorah parades throughout the world will see over 6,500 Chanukah menorah-topped cars hit the road, bringing the Chanukah message of hope and joy through the city and into residential neighborhoods, allowing families to safely share the joy and light of Chanukah with pride.
Throughout the state of New Jersey, Chabad will be organizing scores of giant menorah displays, menorah parades and more. To find a local event in New Jersey, or practically anywhere throughout the world, visit the international Chanukah event directory at www.jewishwayne.com/HanukkahEvents.
