Hanukkah begins on Wednesday, November 27, 2013 (due to its overlap with Thanksgiving, some have dubbed it “Thanksgivukkah”). As many of our Northeastern students will no longer be on campus on the first night of Hanukkah, the festivities are kicking off early on Monday morning with a very unique Human Menorah.
Between 11:30 and 11:45 AM on on the morning of Monday, November 25, the Northeastern community is invited to join in the Krentzman Quad in an effort to create the largest Human Menorah in NU history. The celebration will be filmed and turned into a music video! Oh, and did I mention that there will be a mountain of free donuts? Tag your Instagram and Twitter photos with the hashtag #NUMenorah.
The Hanukkah festivities will continue on campus once we return from Thanksgiving break. The traditional Menorah will be up on the Curry Student Center roof deck. A lighting ceremony will take place on the last night of Hanukkah — Wednesday, December 4 at 5:45 PM. It will be followed by an interfaith dialogue dinner in the Sacred Space (200 Ell Hall).
