World’s biggest Menorah is in New York City. That’s right, it is outside Central Park, on 5th Avenue and East 59th Street. If you don’t know what a Menorah is (I am not Jewish so I had no idea before I moved to the City; I had only seen it on Friends, in the episode “The one with the Black Out”, but still, I didn’t know it was called ‘menorah’). I also posted something relevant the other day on Facebook (link).
Anyhoo, Central Park’s Menorah is 32 feet tall and 4,000-pounds. The organizers needed a construction crane to reach the very top. The giant Menorah was lit this Saturday (December 8th, 2012) in celebration of the first night of Hanukkah.
