It’s a beloved holiday tradition!

Jewish residents from around the Five Boroughs gathered on Sunday to kick off Hanukkah, which marked the second time the holiday fell during the COVID-19 pandemic — though this year’s festivities took a far more jubilant tone, with revelers cautiously welcoming back a return to normalcy. 

“I’m proud to be here and participate in this moment as we bring our city back together,” said Borough President Eric Adams at a Manhattan ceremony. “We need each other, and no matter how challenging it is, we know New Yorkers are resilient, strong, and we’re people of faith. And I say to all of you and your family, have a happy and safe Hanukkah.”
