Traditionally, the first candle on the menorah is lit at nightfall on the first day of the holiday, but, in Orange, everyone in the Tri-town (Bethany, Orange and Woodbridge) community is invited to a Glow In The Dark Chanukah (choose whichever spelling you like) celebration at the High Plains Community Center, 525 Orange Center Road, on Wednesday, Dec. 13.
The celebration begins in the gymnasium at 4:45 p.m. with a Glow-In-The-Dark show with Eric Girardi of Bending Gravity Entertainment.
At 5:15 p.m. everyone will head outside for the Menorah Lighting. (In case of inclement weather the lighting will be moved indoors — the forecast calls for dry but frigid weather). Students of Or Shalom, Temple Emanuel and Chabad Hebrew Schools will light the Menorah.
This will be followed by Chanukah treats.
