EVENDALE (FOX19) -- A public ice sculpture menorah kindling ceremony is at 5 p.m. Sunday at Sports Plus, 10765 Reading Road.
Chabad Jewish Center is hosting the public event on the fourth night of Chanukah, also known as the Festival of Lights.
Rabbi Yisroel Mangel, director of Chabad Jewish Center, organized the ceremony.
“The menorah serves as a symbol of Cincinnati’s dedication to preserve and encourage the right and liberty of all its citizens to worship God freely, openly and with pride,” Mangel said in a press release. “Specifically, in America, a nation that was founded upon and vigorously protects, the right of every person to practice his or her religion free from restraint and persecution, the menorah takes on profound significance, embodying both religious and constitutional principles.”
