PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Thursday is the first night of Hanukkah, but due to the pandemic, members of the Jewish faith in Pittsburgh will meet virtually instead of gathering to light the candle.
The Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh celebrates “Chanukah 1000” on Thursday evening via Zoom.
They will light the menorah as families across town do every year.
They also host a 24 hour feed of the menorah so families can watch it whenever they want.
You can find that on their website.
Meanwhile, South Hills Lights will showcase a Chanukah drive-in in the Dormont Pool parking lot on Thursday evening at 5:30 am.
The great menorah lighting will be a family-friendly multimedia event and is sponsored by the Dormont and Chabad districts of the South Hills.
The event is free but requires registration, which can be found on the Chabad of the South Hills website.
