Chabad of San Marcos and Texas State University host New Braunfels’ first menorah lighting today at 5 p.m. at the Main Plaza, 301 Main Plaza, New Braunfels.

The ceremony is open to both Jews and non-Jews.

The community event is part of the eight-day celebration of Chanukah — also known as Hanukkah —  also known as the Festival of Lights. A menorah is an eight-branched candelabra.

“The theme of Chanukah is the power of light and good,” said Chabad of San Marcos Rabbi Ari Weingarten. “Light and goodness is unstoppable.”

Included in the event are

  • Grand, six-foot menorah lighting
  • Music
  • Chanukah giveaways
  • Crafts for Kids

Masks and social distancing are required.
