Families gather in Dresher park for menorah lighting

Six candles were lit on a menorah in a Dresher park on Tuesday night to honor the sixth night of Hanukkah.

“This is the first time I’ve been in a public menorah lighting myself in my 39 years, so I thought it was really unique opportunity in the neighborhood to stand with other Jews,” Joe Fredrick, a Dresher resident, told CBS News

Attendees were led by Rabbi Deitsch. They prayed for the Israeli hostages who have been held captive for 66 days.
