The 36-foot, 4,000-pound menorah is the world’s biggest. Mayor-elect Eric Adams assisted in lighting it.

“Have a joyful and safe Chanukah,” Adams wished the audience.

“It’s incredibly gorgeous,” Cece Caulford, 7, remarked.

According to Rabbi Shmuel Butman, the lights all around the menorah are to remember those who died during the epidemic

“This menorah represents light, inspiration, and power for all people, regardless of race, religion, color, or faith,” Butman added.

Rabbi Shmuel Metzger and his two daughters spent the event with traditional latkes and doughnuts at the restaurant Wolf and Lamb because the greasy delicacies symbolize the miracle that occurred more than 2,000 years ago in the Holy Temple.
