Menorah Lighting Ceremony and Chanukah Concert

As part of its Holiday on the Lake festivities, the Hamlet of Carmel Civic Association (HCCA) will be sponsoring a menorah lighting ceremony on Thursday, December 14, 2017 at 5:00pm. The holiday celebration will be greatly enhanced this year with an amazing CHANUKAH CONCERT.  Rabbi Avi Korer of Chabad of Putnam County will preside over this Chanukah festival ceremony with singing and refreshments.  The menorah will be located on the shore of Lake Gleneida, at the intersection of Routes 6 and 52 (opposite the Reed Memorial Library), and the public is invited to come help us celebrate. The concert will begin at 5:00pm and the menorah lighting ceremony will begin at 5:30pm. For more local Chanukah activities visit  For more information about the HCCA, visit their website at
