The joy of getting together safely during the pandemic was palpable at Chabad’s “Chanukah Drive-In Experience,” hosted by Rabbi Pesach and Chana Burston in the parking lot of the Chabad Center in Chester. The community was able to enjoy, from the safety of their own vehicles, a night filled with light, music and food.
The festive event began with a community Menorah lighting of a six-foot menorah. The Menorah Lighting Ceremony honored local leaders and front-line workers “who are pillars of light during the darkness of the pandemic,” explained Chana Burston. “I think we can all use a little bit of light right now!”
