The menorah at Fountain Square was officially lit on Dec. 4, the last day of Hanukkah.
Rabbi Dov Hillel Klein supervised the lighting of the candles in the small hannukkiya. Several City officials – Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl, City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz, Police Chief Richard Eddington, Fire Chief Greg Klaiber and Alderman Mark Tendam – pulled the switches to light the bulbs on the 10-foot menorah.
