The City of Acworth is hosting its fourth annual Acworth Menorah Lighting ceremony. The Acworth Menorah Lighting ceremony will be held on Wednesday, December 8th at 6:00p, the second night of Chanukah. Rabbi Zalman Charytan from the Chabad Jewish Center and the Mayor of Acworth Tommy Allegood will be lighting the Menorah at the corner of Cowan Road and Main Street in Downtown Acworth. The City of Acworth provides the following information, "The eight day Jewish holiday commemorates the Jewish Maccabees' military victory over Syrian-Greek oppression more than 2,000 years ago. During Hanukah, Jews across the world celebrate the miracle of light that burnt for eight days out of a single-days-worth of oil found in the Temple. One Hanukah candle is lit the first night and an additional candle is lit each successive night. The holiday is a celebration of religious freedom and hope." Join your Acworth neighbors and light a candle for hope!
