Hanukkah Candle Lighting Ceremony Held at the Hilton
As is the Jewish custom, on the 1st night of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, visitors and locals, joined together at the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino for an informal, familystyle Hanukkah lighting of the resort’s custom-made chanukiyah.
The honor to conduct the candle lighting ceremony was given to Rabbi Blasberg, of Chabad Jewish Center of Aruba. He congratulated guests on the holiday commencement and spoke about the importance of delivering happiness & light, lighting just one candle each day, to illuminate and brighten the world.
The event had a great turnout, and guests loved the prepared traditional Hanukkah treats – Latkes, warm potato pancakes, and round donuts, filled with jelly or chocolate, dusted with powdered sugar. Guests toasted the joyous occasion and received traditional chocolate gold coins, as a yummy surprise memento.
