Chanukah On Ice

Lights. Dreidels. Latkes and music. The holidays are almost here. Join us on the afternoon of December 18 for the Seaport’s annual Chanukah Menorah lighting hosted by the Jewish Learning Experience, Chabad of Wall Street, and the Howard Hughes Corporation. 

Come and enjoy festive music, ice skating, and performances by local artists and a children’s choir. Plenty of family-friendly activities will be a part of the celebration — Chanukah crafts, face painting, an ice menorah carving, and traditional treats. Families and guests of all ages are also invited to join the Seaport Museum for free maritime decorating workshops from 1-5pm.

The light parade begins at 4pm, traveling from the Seaport Ice Rink to the Heineken Riverdeck on the north side of Pier 17, where the new Seaport menorah, designed by Moully Art will be unveiled, and the traditional Menorah Lighting ceremony will take place. This year, local community activist, Paul Hovitz, will be recognized for his work in the Seaport & Lower Manhattan.

The celebration is free, but please RSVP below to confirm attendance.
