The 4th annual menorah lighting Sunday in Arlington Heights will feature a new "art" menorah in which participants will be able to collectively create a mosaic covered in hundreds of drawings depicting people doing good deeds and spreading light to the world.

"The light of the menorah teaches us that the best antidote to darkness is to shift our energy and focus into bringing more light to the world," said Rabbi Yaakov Kotlarsky of the Chabad Jewish Center of Arlington Heights, which is organizing the event at North School Park.

 

Kotlarsky, Mayor Tom Hayes and village officials will take part in the lighting at 3:45 p.m. The free public event will also offer live musical entertainment, menorah kits, Hanukkah games, and complimentary hot potato latkes and soup. Those who register at chabadah.org/chanukah or by calling (224) 357-7002 will receive a free event souvenir.

The Jewish Festival of Lights begins at nightfall on Sunday and concludes Monday, Dec. 6.
