Capitol Hill Community Menorah Lighting 2019
Over 200 community members attended the inaugural Capitol Hill Community Menorah Lighting in 2014 to celebrate the first night of Hanukkah and begin a new annual tradition in the neighborhood. The Capitol Hill BID and Hill Havurah co-sponsored the menorah lighting, which took place right next to the Capitol Hill George Didden Holiday Tree, also known as “Big George.”
The 9-foot outdoor menorah was dedicated to BID Past Board Chairman Paul Pascal for his dedication to the mission and vision of the Capitol Hill BID since 2003 as a board member and his seven years as Chair from 2007 to 2014. Families and community members gathered in the plaza, enjoying hot chocolate, coffee, jelly doughnuts, and potato latkes served by the “Men in Blue”.
This year’s event will be held on the front steps of Reformation (212 East Capitol Street NE) on Sunday, December 22nd from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
