  • The Mission Continues

    As in the past so it remains today - we were and still are under the selfsame commitment to adhere to the directions of the Gedolei Yisrael, who stand guard against breaches of purity threatening our camp.

The biggest Menorah in the world is displayed on the Fifth Avenue of Manhattan, N.Y.

Ya'akov Agam, a native of Rishon Letzion, is the designer behind the large Menorah, which was recorded in the Guinness World Records Book in 5766\2006 as the biggest Menorah in the world. It measures 10 meters in height and weighs close to two tons, and was built at the request of the Chabad Movement.

In Kislev of 5758\1997, the tallest iron Menorah in the world was built by the Chabad Movement in cooperation with the Latrun Park. The menorah was erected in only eight days, and measured 23 meters in height, 15 meters in width and 10 tons in weight. A year later, in 1998, the Menorah was recorded in the Guinness World Records Book as the world's tallest Menorah.

An enormous Menorah, though not kosher for lighting, was built in Kislev, 5765\2004 by the Meir Panim Association and sponsored by the Jerusalem Municipality. Its height reached 22 meters, it weighed 50 tons and it measured a total of 800 square meters. The menorah was composed by close to 1,800 light bulbs.

The Chabad House in Manhattan has been building artistic Menorahs carved out of ice for the past five years.
