Despite Wind And Rain, Menorah Lighting A Hit

The Menorah lighting ceremony scheduled for Wednesday night at Beach 116 Street and Rockaway Beach Blvd. had to be moved in doors due to the driving rain and high winds earlier in the day, but more than 100 revelers moved to Temple Beth-El on Beach 121 Street for songs, chicken and the traditional potato latkes.
