Lod: Garin Torani Adds Menora Lightings

The Garin Torani (“Torah seed group”) in the city of Lod is adding Hanukkah light with several public menorah lightings. Organizer Shilo Adler told Arutz Sheva that the group has coordinated candle lighting in four neighborhoods as well as candle lighting events for the Russian speaking and Ethiopian immigrant communities.

The community included those studying for conversion to Judaism in the experience, he said. “There was a lot of emotion and many tears” as the converts-to-be took part in the lighting, he related.
