Rabbi Mendy Weg of Chabad Northwestern Jewish Student Center joins the menorah lighting celebration for Hanukkah in Fountain Square. Weg said the holiday is about peace and the renewal of energy. His colleague, Rabbi Dov Hillel Klein, noted that six of Evanston’s eight council members were at the event. “That is what makes Evanston such a unique community,” he said. It’s important to light candles outside in public, he said. “We just don't want to keep the message to ourselves.” (Photo by Richard Cahan)
