Happy Hanukkah From Downtown Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE-- Sunday marked the first night of Hanukkah, and across Southeastern Wisconsin, Jews were getting together to celebrate the holiday.

More than 100 people kicked off the Festival of Lights with a public menorah lighting outside of Fiserv Forum hosted by the Milwaukee Bucks.

Both young and old gathered around a large menorah decorated in basketballs to watch Bucks Senior Vice President Alex Lasry light the first candle, with a little Jewish humor.

“Hopefully the oil can last us through the NBA finals,” Lasry said.

See a bit of the Hanukkah celebration here.

P.S. I wonder if any of my judeophile friends were there.
