Valley's Jewish community gathers to light the Menorah

-
Happy Hanukkah.
 
The valley's Jewish community gathered tonight to celebrate the first night of Hanukkah.
 
A grand menorah lighting took place this evening at Tempe Public Library.
 
Chabad of the East Valley teamed up with the city to host the event. 
 
Before the seven-foot-tall menorah was lit, the rabbi spoke to the crowd calling this year the 'Year of Unity.'
 
"This entire year represents this idea of people coming together in a unifying manner and celebrating their religion together," said Rabbi Mendy Deitsch. 
 
Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell also attended tonight's celebration. 
 
The holiday lasts for a total of eight days.
