Hanukkah Celebrations Continue With Torch Run

WILKES-BARRE -- Hanukkah celebrations continued Sunday in downtown Wilkes-Barre.

The Jewish Community Center held its 45th annual Torch Run.

Runners from every synagogue in the city carried a torch to the JCC to light the community menorah.

That was followed by a candlelight chicken dinner and a sing-along.

“It’s a nice time for everyone in the community to be together, and to commemorate the holiday and to have a nice evening together,” said David Schwager.

The last night of Hanukkah is Wednesday, December 4.
