Event No. 3 – Chabad Austin, December 1, 2013 celebrates Chanukah at city hall.

Chabad Rabbi Yosef Levertov welcomes guests to the 2013 Chanukah menorah lighting at Austin City Hall.

Austin Chabad, continuing in their annual tradition, lighted their second Chanukah menorah at City Hall on December 1st, 2013.

Rabbi Yosef Levertov wishes to thank all our supporters, old friends and those new faces in helping us celebrate this important annual tradition. Lighting the Chanukah menorah in public is an important act in fulfilling the mitzvot and the wishes of our beloved Rebbe.

Everyone celebrated Chabad style, a natural for Austin.
