New Location of Alberta's Largest Menorah!

The Menorah is now located near the Holocaust Memorial on the Legislature grounds (See map)

Due to the latest Covid restrictions, we ask all those attending to stay in their cars and slowly circle the grounds of the memorial. We will be distributing light up Chanukah wands for people to wave from their car windows to show their Jewish pride. Feel free to decorate your car as well! Please consult the map to see the route we'll use to circle the Grand Menorah lighting. 

All circling cars will receive Chanukah boxes! 
Please do not get out of your cars for the health and safety of all those attending,
and in accordance with the latest Alberta Health Covid restriction of no outdoor social gatherings.

Upon arriving at the Legislature grounds, the parade will go southbound on 107 St. The Chanukah wands will be given out by a volunteer standing on the sidewalk south of the Security Gate. Cars will then continue south and make a left on 96th Ave. The Chanukah treat boxes will be given out as each car passes the bus stop at the corner of 97th Ave. and 106 St. The parade will make a left onto 106 St. and pull into the parking lot on the right. Cars will exit the parking lot on the north side and make a left
onto 106 St. to circle back around the Menorah Lighting. We'll continue with a right turn onto 107 St. heading north. 

The entire circle will be driven at a snail's pace, while the ceremony takes place. Those not at the wheel will be able to watch the lighting from their car windows and tune into via the Zoom link.

We thank everyone in advance for participating in this beautiful show of Jewish unity and keeping it safe by staying in your cars at all times.
