Giant Menorah in Jerusalem from Rebbe's Craftsman

Chabad of Talbieh and Mamilah are joining together to host a giant outdoor chanukiyah. It is being built by Rabbi Herschel Pekkar, a Jewish craftsman who was originally commissioned to make a chanukiyah for the Lubavicher Rebbe. The chanukiyah will be a super sized replication of the original and be stationed at the Mamilah outdoor pedestrian walkway near Jerusalem's Old City. Local metal-smith Shmuel Hertzog will assist him. Candle-lighting ceremonies will take place every night of Chanukah using torches.
