Menorah Lighting Ceremony

The City of Acworth invites everyone to its annual Menorah Lighting Ceremony on December 20, 2022, at 6pm.   This year’s ceremony will be held at Logan Farm Park, 4405 Cherokee Street.

The Menorah is located at the corner of  Cowan  Road and Main Street in Downtown Acworth.  Rabbi  Zalman  Charytan  from the  Chabad  Jewish Center  will officiate the lighting with Mayor Tommy  Allegood  assisting.

The eight day Jewish holiday commemorates the Jewish Maccabees’ military victory over Syrian-Greek oppression more than 2,000 years ago. During Hanukkah, Jews across the world celebrate the miracle of light that burnt for eight days out of a single-days-worth of oil found in the Temple. One Hanukkah candle is lit the first night and an additional candle is lit each successive night. The holiday is a celebration of religious freedom and hope.
