“We gather in unity and increase in light to illuminate the darkness, ensuring a bright Jewish future in Brighton Beach, Coney Island and around the world,” said Rabbi David Okunov. “It was really special to host this annual celebration of light, kindling the Coney Island Menorah in the southern Brooklyn section of New York City, which is known for its diversity and dedication to persevering and celebrating all its citizens as they are; and this year we’re shining that great symbol ever so bright.”
