Chabad of Burien/Federal Way is delighted to share that their large, public lighted menorah has found a home at the former site of the Countryside Café on Ambaum Blvd. SW at SW 149th Street.
Through the generous graciousness of Ngoc Le, space has been provided at the site where the restaurant was once located to Rabbi Moshe Wolff to erect this meaningful Hanukkah holiday display.
Also providing assistance was Matt Alston of Time Tunnel Records, who provided power from their adjacent business on Ambaum.
According to brittanica.com, Hanukkah is an 8-day festival which “commemorates in particular the rededication of the Second Temple of Jerusalem by the lighting of candles on each day of the festival.” It lasts for eight days in remembrance of what Jews acknowledge as a miraculous lasting of a small amount of oil, lighting the temple for far longer than it should have.
Hanukkah began this year on Thursday, Dec 7, and continues through this Friday, Dec 15, 2023.
Please enjoy this special light tonight and tomorrow as they bring closure to the Hanukkah holiday.
