Festive Menorah Candles light-up Castro Valley Boulevard

There was light instead of darkness for the third night of Chanukah on Castro Valley Boulevard, Castro Valley. Rabbi Shimon Gruzman from the Castro Valley Chabad explained how a small band of Maccabees defeated the Syrian-Greek Army over 2000 years ago, which was the first known battle for religious freedom. There was a joyous celebration with a balloon artist, singing, a spinning dreidel, latkes (potato pancakes) and jelly doughnuts. Firefighters from the Alameda County Fire Department provided the surprise of the evening by gently tossing chocolate Chanukah gelt (coins) from the top of their fire truck. #chabadcastrovalley
