Local Synagogues Join To Light Beach 116 Street Menorah

Three of Rockaway's synagogues, West End Temple, Congregation Ohab Zedek and Temple Beth-El, joined this week to celebrate the eight days of Chanukah with the traditional lighting of the menorah on Beach 116 Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard. On Monday night, the first night of the holiday, the night air was so cold that the festivities were moved into the lobby of the North Fork Bank branch on the shopping street. On the second evening, the junior chorus from West End Temple sang traditional songs for the crowd.
