BILL GRAHAM MENORAH PROJECT: LIGHTING IT UP SINCE 1975

Join Us Daily from December 12 – 19 to Spread the Light of the Miraculous!

Bill Graham Menorah Day is December 17

A local miracle happened in San Francisco in 1975 when community leaders joined together to create the first big public menorah and celebration of Chanukah outside of Israel. The San Francisco “Mama Menorah” public celebration has now become a global phenomenon with large menorahs lit annually in over 500 cities worldwide. For more information, go to: Bill Graham Menorah Project

This flagship Chabad SF project has become one of the biggest Jewish events in the Bay Area, with over 5,000 people from all walks of Jewish life coming together to hear rousing music, meet Jewish celebrities, eat traditional Chanukah foods and, of course, light Chanukah menorahs. More than any other, this event has helped project an upbeat, joyful image to traditional Judaism in the media and in the eyes of Jews everywhere. A first for America, the San Francisco Bill Graham Menorah has become the most imitated Chabad program, with menorahs lit every year in Berlin, Paris, London, Singapore, Ho Chi Min City, Moscow, and in both large and small cities across the United States.
