Is Mühlheim just the Beginning?
Hanukkah-Celebration cancelled for security concerns
The Jewish Hanukkah Fest is traditionally celebrated in public. ON central places, large Hanukkah Chandelieres are erected, where, at the first night of the Holiday, in a festive and happy ceremony the first candle is lightened. This act manifests in public: Light chases out the Dark.
In Mülheim/Ruhr, this year, darkness won. This thursday, on the “Synagogue Square”, the third candle was supposed to be lightened in a public festive act. But now, the Jewish Community and the city had to cancel the celebration – for security reasons.
