Hanukkah Candle Lighting at the Kotel

It is an annual tradition to watch the candle lighting ceremony at the Kotel, the site closest to the Hanukkah miracle.

The candles will be lit in a magnificent menorah made entirely of bronze casting, more than 2 meters high and about 2 meters wide, weighing about one ton.

Chanukah candles will be lit according to the mehadrin custom from olive oil to last throughout the night.
