VIDEO: WheatonArts Lights South Jersey's Largest MenorahPosted:
MILLVILLE - Sunday, December 6th marked the first night of Hanukkah.
According to tradition, there are eight nights of lighting the menorah, which represents the eight nights that a one-day supply of oil lasted for the Maccabees.
To celebrate their own holiday tradition, WheatonArts lit one of the largest glass menorahs in South Jersey.
"One of the area's largest menorahs," said Arianne Hegeman. "It was built about ten years ago, it is made out of blue glass and supported by some copper wire. It is quite a tradition here at WheatonArts."
The menorah was made right here at WheatonArts and has brought the Jewish community together in South Jersey for the past ten years. The ceremonial candle-lighting will continue throughout the rest of the Hanukkah season.
