Congregation Adath Israel of Newtown and Hadassah of Greater Newtown/Danbury are co-sponsoring a large menorah lighting on Tuesday, December 19, at 6 pm, to mark the eighth night of Hanukkah. The lighting will take place outdoors in front of Adath Israel, which is at 115 Huntingtown Road.

The sponsors invite residents of Newtown and neighboring towns to join the communitywide event and gather together to sing the traditional Hanukkah blessings and holiday songs and share chocolate gelt. Afterward, everyone is invited to come into the synagogue social hall for latkes (potato pancakes), jelly donuts and hot cider.
