FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS BEGINS AT SUNDOWN

Rabbi Shmuly Rothman of Toledo puts the final arm on a nine-foot-tall menorah in his yard that will be lit today during a party celebrating the first night of Hanukkah. The eight-day Jewish festival of lights commemorates the victory of the Maccabees over Antiochus of Syria and their rededication of the defiled Temple of Jerusalem.
