About the event

Celebrate Chanukah, the Jewish festival of lights, with the entire community at our annual event in the heart of Islington:

- witness the ceremony of lighting the nine-branch Menorah

- sing traditional songs

- listen to live klezmer

- make your own candles with the Jewish Museum

- make your own shadow puppets with the Little Angel Theatre

- play dreidel

- taste delicious latkes, doughnuts, and hot cocoa

- meet new and old friends

- raffle prizes from Arsenal, After Noah and Angel Flowers

The Islington Menorah Lighting has grown to become the second-biggest public menorah lighting in the UK, bringing together Jewish and non-Jewish members of the community, from Islington and beyond. The Islington Menorah Lighting is supported by Islington Council and hosted by Chabad Islington. This event is free and open to all - please join with your family, friends and neighbours!

Security update: We are working closely with Islington Police, CST (Community Security Trust), Islington Council security department and a private security team to ensure a multi-layered safety plan is in place for Sunday's event. We are also working closely with local community and faith groups to ensure everyone is welcome and safe in Islington.
