Spreading the Light of Chanukah Throughout Yonkers

Chabad of Yonkers Rabbi Mendy Hurwitz sees David Nahmias, owner and creator of Legs Diamond and other liquors, light the chanukiah on the sixth night of Chanukah.

On the sixth night of Chanukah, Chabad of Yonkers’ Rabbi Hurwitz led a Chanukah procession of almost two dozen cars, each with a brightly lit “Happy Chanukah” sign and a lit electric menorah on top, illuminating Yonkers with a wonderful parade of menorahs. The car parade ended at Yonkers’ Nahmias et Fils Distillery for pizza, warm latkes, sufganiyot and birthday cake celebrating the rabbi’s son Chaim’s 16th birthday.

Following a Chanukah car parade through Yonkers, New York Yonkers Police Dept. Lt. David Koch lights the shammash on the sixth night of Chanukah with Chabad of Yonkers Rabbi Mendy Hurwitz.

The Chanukah celebrations continued at Yonkers City Hall on Chanukah’s seventh evening with Mayor Mike Spano lighting the shammash and other dignitaries kindling other lights, followed by a plentiful kosher dinner and sufganiyot.

An electric menorah decorated each of the almost two dozen cars for the Chanukah car parade through Yonkers, escorted by the Yonkers police.
