Menorah lighting held in Elizabeth on 5th night of Hanukkah

Dozens of school children were on hand to help light the Hanukkah menorah in Elizabeth on the fifth night of the holiday.



The ceremony took place on the front lawn of the Jewish Education Center. Large olive oil pots made up the 6-foot-tall menorah lamp.



"It's a way for a little bit of light to lighten others without losing any of its own essence," says Rabbi Uzi Beer.



Elizabeth Mayor Chris Bollwage also attended the ceremony.



The menorah lighting was followed by singing and dancing.
