Avondale Estates, GA — Chabad Decatur held its fourth annual Lighting of the Menorah at Dewey Brown Plaza in Avondale Estates on the third day of Chanukah, Tuesday, Nov. 30.
Avondale Estates City Commissioner Lisa Shortell welcomed those in attendance on behalf of the board of mayor and commissioners and the city. City Commissioner Lionel Laratte lit the shamash, the center candle on the menorah. Doughnuts and latkes were served and songs were sung. Rabbi Avremi Slavaticki from Chabad Decatur thanked the city for working so hard to make the event happen.
“Give a round of applause to the city of Avondale, the amazing workers and commissioners. There is no better home than Avondale Estates,” said Rabbi Slavaticki. “We are right now here in the city openly shining the light of Chanukah, shining our personal light and shining the light from one to another.”
