National Menorah Lighting
Perhaps the most prominent public Chanukah program in the world is the annual lighting ceremony of the National Chanukah Menorah on the Ellipse, just across from the White House in Washington, DC.
The lighting of this menorah – the world’s largest – is attended by thousands every year and seen via TV newscasts, internet feeds, and other media by tens of millions across the nation and around the world, many of them hundreds of miles from any Jewish community.
This event is free, but tickets are required.
