Chanukah Pride Parade in NYC

New York

( 200 teenagers were shuttled Tuesday in Hummer stretch limousines outfitted with rooftop menorahs, to the Jewish Heritage Museum in New  York City. It was the fourth night of Chanukah, and the teenagers, all members of Chabad’s CTeen program were celebrating at a grand Chanukah party.

Sponsored by 15  Chabad centers of the tri-state area, the spectacular menorah convoy paraded through Manhattan’s streets.

“This was a unique opportunity for these teens to really feel good about who they are as Jewish people” said Rabbi Bentzion Treitel, National Event Coordinator at CTeen. “They were in the most public of places celebrating a staple of Jewish life.”
