Lights of Resistance: A National Candle Lighting

December 17, 2020 | 8:00 pm

Yellow hanukkiyah on blue circle with text: Lights of Resistance: National Hanukkah Candle Lighting

Join Bend the Arc and many friends for a special Hanukkah Celebration.

Hanukkah brings more than light into our lives — it reminds us that we have risen up time and again against tyranny. In our tradition, we are always kindling the flame of justice.

Join us for a unique (and virtual) communal menorah lighting on the final night of Hanukkah to light the path forward through the night and into a new dawn of hope and possibility in the new year.

Bring a hanukkiah if you have one. Festive attire encouraged.
