Menorah Lighting Ceremony

"Menorah Lighting Ceremony"

Chief William J. Bratton and Assistant Chief Jim McDonnell

What:
Menorah Lighting Ceremony

When:

Where:
Parker Center , 150 North Los Angeles Street , Los Angeles

Los Angeles : Members of the Jewish Community and prominent City officials will participate in the “Menorah Lighting Ceremony,” on Tuesday, December 7, 2004 , at 5:00 p.m. at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Parker Center.

The Menorah lighting is a Jewish tradition, which symbolizes the miracle of light. Over 2,000 years the land of ancient Israel had been conquered, and the practice of Judaism was outlawed. Yet a patriot, named Judah Maccabee, and his followers courageously captured Jerusalem . As the Maccabees prepared to rededicate the holy temple, they found enough oil to last for only one day. But the oil lasted for eight days, a miracle that we remember by lighting the menorah.

The Los Angeles Police Department would like to cordially invite all Department Employees to attend this event.

For additional information, please contact Rabbi Yossi, at 818-355-3116.
