RABBI Mendel Jacobs, minister of shul in the park, welcomed special guests last week to light the menorah and mark the start of Chanukah.

Manish Joshi, interim chief executive of Newark Care and Rabbi Jacobs joined residents of the Newark Burnfield care home for a Chanukah dinner.

Rabbi Jacobs then lit the menorah each night at both Westacres and Burnfield care homes, while residents enjoyed playing dreidel and listening to music provided by the Calderwood Lodge choir, who later handed out Chanukah gifts.
