Help light the Menorah and celebrate Chanukah

Tony Frank lights giant menorah on LSC Plaza 2015

CSU President Tony Frank lights the Menorah on the LSC Plaza in 2015.

In the Jewish Festival of Lights, the menorah symbolizes the idea that acts of goodness will light up the darkness, on a personal and global level. The universal message of Chanukah that we can all overcome adversity and make the world a better place with just a little bit of light is especially powerful and resonant this year.

Join Colorado State University President Tony Frank, students, faculty and staff Dec. 14, 5-p.m., on the Lory Student Center Plaza, for the annual Menorah Lighting and Chanukah Celebration, featuring lighting of the giant menorah, Jewish holiday music (including Adam Sandler) and traditional Chanukah foods (donuts and chocolate gelt). 

All are welcome at this free event. A tradition on the CSU campus for 13 years, the menorah lighting is one of more than 12,000 public celebrations that take place around the world every year since the 1970s. Sponsored by ASCSU, Fraternity & Sorority Life, Lory Student Center, President’s Office and Chabad Jewish Student Organization.
