Did you know that there are people in Rockland County who are afraid to display their menorahs in their windows? This year, during the eight nights of Chanukah, please place a menorah or any candle in your front window for your neighbors to see. Then, take a photo and share it on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with a message of hope along with #RocklandShinesWithHope. 

Let us shine these lights as beacons of hope, peace, acceptance, and the promise of a bright future for all of Rockland.

Last Chanukah, Rockland County was devastated by a senseless act of hate and violence in Monsey. This Chanukah, let us come together to show our unity against hate and divisiveness. No one should be afraid to display their menorah or any other holiday decoration or symbol. Show your Jewish neighbors that you stand with them by taking part in this simple yet meaningful act of unity, both in your home and on social media, and show the entire community that we stand opposed to hatred and violence. We are stronger together. 

Show the world that
