Calgary Community Menorah Lighting Annual Calgary Community Menorah Lighting
Calgary's Proud Tradition!

Since its inception in the late 1980s, the Community Menorah Lighting in Calgary has attracted participation from all affiliations, all congregations and all sectors of the community. It is conducted inside City Hall, the local mayor has always participated, representatives of almost every major Jewish (and many non-Jewish) organizations and institutions and families show up in the many hundreds for the event, and it is all carried into the rest of the community live on Shaw cable television. Other television stations frequently cut into their news programs live as the candles are being lit and blessings recited. It is truly a broadly-shared event and the formula is ready to be applied globally. - www.Menorah.ca
