This year, Hanukkah begins on Thursday, December 10 and runs through Friday, December 18. The Festival of Lights will be celebrated in two events in Maplewood — one virtual and one socially distanced.
NEW this year, the Maplewood Township Division of Arts & Culture will livestream the first night Menorah lighting at 4:30 on Thursday, December 10 via Zoom and YouTube:
In addition, Dickens Village is also planning to hold a socially distanced Menorah Lighting in Ricalton Square:
December 15 (Tuesday) — Menorah Lighting
6:15 pm Ricalton Square
The December 15 event is part of a modified version of Dickens Village due to COVID-19 restrictions. Masks and social distancing will be observed and monitored at all times so that a safe environment can be maintained for everyone.
There are no public menorah lighting ceremonies announced for South Orange at this time.
