Like in previous years, Chanukah candles will be lit every night at the Western Wall Plaza, the site closest to where the Chanukah miracle took place. The candles will be lit in a magnificent menorah generously donated by George Rohr of the United States.The bronze menorah is over 2 meters high and two meters wide, weighs one ton, and took about seven months to create.The Chanukah candles will be lit with olive oil using special weather-proof utensils allowing the menorah to remain lit throughout the night. The menorah will be placed on a new and lit stage.Chanukah candle-lighting will take place every evening of Chanukah at 4:30pm, on Saturday night at 7:00pm, and on Friday at 3:30pm.
