To Do Wednesday: Lighting the World’s Largest Menorah

The world's largest menorah.

The world’s largest menorah.

When I think of Hanukkah, I don’t necessarily think of The Guinness Book of World Records, but I love the fact that the official Guinness-certified World’s Largest Menorah will be lit with its first candle tonight, with additional ones added in public lightings through Dec. 4. Aside from it being a 32-foot-tall, gold-colored, 4,000-pound steel structure, it has specially designed glass chimneys to protect it from wind. Bonus: On Sunday, there’s free chocolate gelt for kids and latkes, as well as live music, singing and dancing.
