A tradition continues for Chanukah with Beth Chabad CSL

Rabbi Mendel Raskin, the charismatic spiritual leader of Beth Chabad CSL,   spent the first night of Chanukah in his native home of Casablanca, Morocco. He then boarded  a plane headed to his  adopted home of Côte Saint-Luc and was front and center with members of council to light the giant menorah in front of City Hall.

Councillors Oren Sebag, David Tordjman, myself, Dida Berku, Sidney Benizri and Steven Erdelyi with Rabbi Raskin.


There was a large crowd on hand. Emmanuel  Darmond of the Deli Boyz handed  out 350 hot dogs, along with delicious donuts. Dozens of cars lined up with menorahs on their roofs. Members of council were carried on a lift to the top of the menorah. Pro-Mayor Sidney Benizri sang the Chanukah prayers and we each gave brief remarks to the large and enthusiastic crowd. Chanukah music played in the background.

Thank you Rabbi Raskin and your team for providing us with such an exciting program each year on the occasion of Chanukah!
