This year, the lighting of the 9-foot-tall menorah outside the Lawrence Public Library also included fire dancers, in keeping with the theme of “Light up the Night.”

The theme “symbolizes our commitment to spreading light and peace in the world,” according to a news release ahead of the event.

“Just as a little light dispels much darkness, when one person engages in kindness and good deeds; it benefits other people in the community.”

Hanukkah continues through the evening of Monday, Dec. 6.
