Menorah Made of Kosher Food Cans to be built in West Nyack

Very cool.

“West Nyack, NY — Menorahs come in many shapes and sizes. But a 7-foot menorah, constructed from donated kosher food cans?

That’s what’s being planned for this month in West Nyack.

Chabad of Rockland in New City and Chabad Jewish Enrichment Center of Chestnut Ridge have joined forces for the past two years to build a menorah at the Palisades Center mall made from Legos donated by the Lego Store at the mall.

Rabbi Yisroel Goldberg of Chabad of Rockland thought this year the congregants would build a menorah that would benefit Rockland’s needy.

“Building the menorah is a great way to educate children about what I am going to give to someone who is needy and who doesn’t have what I have,” Goldberg said.

He estimates that the menorah, which will be built Dec. 19, will be made from 200 to 300 cans that have been donated by the Rockland Kosher Supermarket in Monsey. The food will be donated to the Jewish Family Service, People to People and Tomchei Shabbos in Monsey.”
