With Hanukkah beginning tonight, we had a timely discussion with Rabbi Marc Mandel from Touro Synagogue about the Jewish Holiday, what it stands for in 2017, the festival of lights and much more.

Touro Synagogue is the oldest synagogue building still standing in the United States, the oldest surviving Jewish synagogue building in North America, and the only surviving synagogue building in the U.S. dating to the colonial era.
