San Francisco 2013 Hanukkah Festival: 25-Foot-Tall Menorah | Union Square

2013 Hanukkah Festival: Rabbi & Robot Candle Lighting & DJ Party | Union SquareCelebrate Hanukkah 2013 with the 39th annual lighting of the 25 foot tall mahogany Bill Graham Menorah in Union Square.

Lighting ceremonies take place from November 27, 2013 through December 4, 2013 at approximately 5 pm on most days (Friday is at 3:30 pm and Saturday is at 7:30 pm). This San Francisco tradition, the brainchild of rock and roll concert promoter Bill Graham, begun in 1975.

2013 Hanukkah Festival: Rabbi & Robot Candle Lighting & DJ Party | Union SquareThe seventh candle lighting will honor George Zimmer, a long time supporter of the Union Square Chanukah Festival who is probably better known to you as the Men’s Wearhouse guy (he also happens to be the founder of the store and a Bay Area resident).

At 5:30 pm, there will be a candle lighting by a rabbi and a robot – yes, a real robot created by David Calkins and Ken Goldberg who will also be present.

Music provided by DJ Izzy Wise.
