Rabbi Aaron L. Raskin, leader of Congregation B’nai Avraham in Brooklyn Heights, partnered with Joseph Bochetto, Branch Manager at New York Community Bank Borough Park’s branch on 13th Avenue, to light the candles on the seventh night of Chanukah at Brooklyn Borough Hall on Tuesday night.

Rabbi Raskin, atop a Con Edison cherry picker, used a propane torch to light the 25-foot-tall Rabbi Jacob J. Hecht Menorah. 

The festivities, sponsored by Chabad of Brooklyn Heights, included exuberant music and dancing, potato pancakes for all and special prizes for the kids.
