Shine the Light of Chanukah on Pearl Street with the County’s Largest Menorah

Hosted by the Boulder County Center for Judaism and the Boulder JCC

BOULDER, CO: December is one of the darkest times of the year, and this year the world is a dark place. But every year, Chanukah comes around to help us create and spread light.

For over 20 years, the Boulder Jewish community has gathered on Pearl Street Mall for the annual Menorah lighting featuring the biggest Hanukkah menorah in the county. As a popular Chanukah event, hundreds join yearly in the public display of adding in light and Jewish pride.

Once again, the Boulder Fire Department is bringing a ladder truck to create the Chanukah gelt drop. Stand under the rain of Chanukah and collect the torrent of gelt and good luck.

NEW! Be the first to see the Art Menorah, made entirely of tiles decorated with pain markers by kids of all ages at the 2023 Boulder Jewish Festival this summer.

Of course, there will be hot latkes made right on site and fresh sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts).

When: Monday, December 11 at 5:30pm
Where: 1300 block of the Pearl Street Mall, behind the courthouse.

No registration is required, but, if you do register, the first 100 people will receive a special Chanukah gift at the event. Register
at OR Boulder Please do not register at both.
