Chanukah News Release 2009 | Omaha Press Release Services | Stern PR

  1. 1. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 13, 2009 Contact: Shevi Katzman Chabad of Nebraska - Omaha 402-210-4986 OMAHA CHANUKAH PARADE ON WHEELS THIS SUNDAY! (Omaha, NE) -- “Light trumps darkness,” the message Sunday Dec. 13th, on the third night of the 8-day Jewish holiday Chanukah. Beginning at 3:30 p.m., Jewish families shall meet at the J.C.C. (tad south of 132nd & Dodge) parking lot, adorn vehicles with holiday flags, before embarking on a police-escorted parade along Dodge Street – which wraps at the Omaha Police Barn located on the ConAgra Campus, 615 Leavenworth. Upon 4:30 p.m. arrival, a giant Menorah shall be lit while families recite in Hebrew - a holiday prayer. Traditional potato pancakes called latkes (lot’-kus) shall be served. Fun craft making - offered too. “The Chanukah Car Parade is a fun way to teach children and the general public about the holiday in a creative way,” notes Rabbi Mendel Katzman of Chabad of Nebraska. The event is - free and open - to all. Chanukah, a.k.a., the festival of lights, celebrates the liberation/rededication of the ancient Jerusalem temple that an oppressive regime destroyed. In remembrance, families add one candle each holiday night - to a Menorah. Families also exchange gifts. Editor’s Note: Rabbi Katzman is available for interviews. For additional pre-event info feel free to reach him via cell at 578-6724. -- End -- Copywriting offered as a public service by Susan L. Stern, Stern PR Marketing Omaha:
