The event, open to the public with live music, holiday food and activities for children, is the result of volunteers and Jewish religious leaders coming together with private funding.

"A town-wide menorah in Glen Rock is a long time coming," said Glen Rock resident Erica Danziger, one of the lead planners of the celebration. "This is a truly cooperative experience to benefit the whole community."

In addition to "Rock the Lights," Glen Rock residents can also celebrate Hanukkah this year at the Glen Rock Public Library. On Sunday, Dec. 17, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., the Jewish Families of Glen Rock will host Hanukkah crafts, games and an exciting raffle. Participants will be treated to chocolate "gelt" and music, too. All ages are welcome.
