Chanukah brought light to Bournemouth's Town Hall on Monday 18 December, as His Worshipful the Mayor and Mayoress of Bournemouth invited a cross-section of the town's Jewry to take part in the annual Chanukah candle-lighting ceremony in the Mayor's Parlour. Chair of BJRC Greg Rubins paid tribute to the Mayor and Mayoress for once again hosting this delightful event and acknowledged that incumbent Mayor, Councillor Lawrence Williams, was in fact instrumental in starting the initiative some years ago. Rabbis from the Reform, Orthodox and Lubavitch communities led attendees in prayer and between them explained the deep meaning behind lighting the Chanukiyah.
