Community members came out on Sunday night after the rain subsided to celebrate the official beginning of Hanukkah. Hosted by Temple Beth El in Patchogue, there was a special ceremony to light the menorah at Capital One Plaza on Main Street. Joined by elected officials Mayor Paul Pontieri and Suffolk County Legis. Rob Calarco, Rabbi Azriel Fellner lead a blessing followed by songs of celebration. Pictured is the crowd that gathered in front of the menorah to celebrate.
