The Barclays Center hosted two consecutive menorah lightings this Chanukah at Monday night’s Nets game and at last night’s Islanders Game.
In between the first and second quarters, when the sold out stadium was at its max, Jacob Tilem of CTeen Prospect Heights, NY lit up the jumbotrons as his Rabbi, Rabbi Mendy Hecht, proudly watched.
Rabbi Mendy Kotlarsky, executive director of Merkos 302 then shared the Rebbe’s Chanukah message with over 19,000 people. Rabbi Hecht then thanked the Barclays CEO Brett Yormark for making the Jewish Heritage Night a reality.
Dudu Fisher raised the roof with a stellar national anthem rendition and intermission performance.
Both events were coordinated by CTeen.
