This year, for the only time in recorded history, the US Thanksgiving celebration coincides with the first day of Channukah. For this auspicious occasion, Mayor Eddie Francis joined the Windsor Jewish community for the fifth annual lighting of the community menorah at Devonshire Mall.
As in years past, this event was intended to collect for a charitable cause. This year's recipient was the Street Help / Unit 7 Homeless Services. The socks and mittens collected by the sponsors (Shaarey Zedek, Shaar Hashomayim, Temple Beth El, Windsor Regional Hospital and Massey High School) will come in very handy for this bitter, cold winter.

The third annual Channukah Community Menorah Lighting event was known by the theme: "Legos for Kids!"
The giant menorah was built totally from legos purchased with funds donated by the three local synagogues (Shaarey Zedek, Shaar Hashomayim, and Temple Beth El) and money collected by students from Massey Secondary School. Approximately 3000 lego pieces were used to build the menorah. After the ceremony at Devonshire Mall, the menorah was transported to Windsor Regional Hospital (Metropolitan Campus) where it remained on display for a few days before being disassembled for use by the children.
