Six-Foot Menorah Coming to Clarendon For Hanukkah

A six-foot menorah will be lit in Clarendon next week in celebration of Hanukkah.

This year, the Jewish holiday begins at sunset on Sunday (Dec. 22) and ends on Monday, Dec. 30.

The Light Up Arlington event will take place in Clarendon Central Park (3140 Wilson Blvd) on the evening of Wednesday, Dec. 25 — also known as Christmas Day. Sponsored by Chabad Lubavitch of Alexandria-Arlington, the lighting of the menorah will begin at 6 p.m.

Hot potato latkes will be served, and traditional chocolate gelt and dreidels will be given out. The event is free to attend, and there will be a live musical performance.

The following evening, the same organization plans to host a Hanukkah festival in Old Town, Alexandria, where they will similarly light a giant menorah.
