Representatives from Lubavitch of Wisconsin along with County Executive Chris Abele helped light the city's official menorah last week at the county courthouse, kicking off the Hanukkah season.

Singers from Hillel Academy Children’s Choir were on hand to lead the crowd in traditional Hanukkah songs.

“The holiday season is a wonderful time to celebrate with all people and all faiths,” said County Executive Chris Abele in a release. “Hanukkah reminds us of the importance of gathering with family and celebrating small miracles.”
