5751-1990 "Chanukah Live" Celebrations

Scenes from a “Chanukah Live” celebration which was telecast simultaneously all over the world.
Chanukah reminds every Jew that it is G-d’s eternal mandate to carry the torch of His “Mitzvah-candle and Torah-light.” With most Mitzvos, the “candle” and “light” are not physically visible. But with the Chanukah candles we see how fulfilling the Mitzvah creates actual physical light that illuminates all one’s surroundings.

At the end of the Chanukah Live children’s rally in 1990, the Rebbe gives coins to be handed out to the children, and personally hands coins to the phographers of the event.
On Chanukah, Jewish children receive Chanukah Gelt. The charity given by children has special significance because they don’t make money of their own; they are limited to what their parents give them. Nevertheless, Jewish children eagerly open their pockets to those in need, and increase the amount they give, every single day.
