Rabbi Niles Goldstein of Congregation Beth Shalom lit the Chanukah Menorah in St. Helena’s Lyman Park on Saturday, Dec. 16, one of the eight nights of Chanukah, which began Dec. 12 and ended Dec. 20. The dates for Chanukah are determined by the Jewish lunar calendar, and change every year. Nineteen years ago a small group of St. Helena citizens and several local churches —- the St. Helena Catholic Church, United Methodist Church of St. Helena, First Baptist Church and Calvary Christian Center —- donated this Chanukah menorah to the City of St. Helena to be displayed in Lyman Park during the Chanukah holiday. A menorah is a nine-branched candelabra used only during the Jewish holiday of Chanukah, the “Festival of Lights.”
