Muscovites Dance in the Snow to Chanukah Music

December 14, 2012 9:00 AM

The Jewish community of Moscow braved the cold and trekked in the snow to celebrate at the lighting of the Chanuka menorah erected by Chabad-Lubavitch of Moscow outside the Kremlin.

Chief Rabbi of Moscow Berel Lazr lit the giant Menorah and told the crowd that "the light of the candles should burn in your souls" and he urged them to light a menorah at home and continue to enhance their connection to the their Jewish roots.
