Community Menorah Lighting

Since 2014, community members have come together for The Annual Capitol Hill Menorah Lighting to celebrate the first night of Hanukkah. The BID and Hill Havurah co-sponsor the menorah lighting held on the front steps of the Church of Reformation (212 E Capitol St NE).

The 9-foot outdoor menorah was dedicated to BID Past Board Chairman Paul Pascal for his dedication to the mission and vision of the Capitol Hill BID since 2003 as a board member and his seven years as Chairman from 2007-2014. Families and community members gathered in the plaza, enjoying hot chocolate and coffee served by our “men in blue” as well as jelly doughnuts and potato latkes, which are traditional foods served during Hanukkah.
