MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) – A South Florida synagogue celebrated the first night of Hanukkah with a festival in St John Beach.

People gathered on Lincoln Road Thursday to light the first candle of the menorah during a celebration at the Chabad Jewish Synagogue in St John Beach.

The Jewish holiday, also known as the Festival of Lights, lasts eight days and commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem in the second century.

A candle is lit every night, accompanied by a special blessing.
