Shine a Light on Antisemitism: Times Square Menorah Lighting

Antisemitism is intensifying. Our efforts to fight it must be even stronger.

Nearly one out of every four Jews in the U.S. experiences antisemitism. It’s become normalized across our culture — on social media, in pop culture and politics, and on the streets. This Hanukkah, UJA is joining with Shine A Light to dispel the darkness and to say: enough is enough. In the heart of New York City, we’ll publicly display our Jewish identity as we light the menorah together and raise awareness about antisemitism.

We hope you’ll participate in this national demonstration of Jewish pride — with powerful messages from key city and state leaders and lively performances by Jewish musicians—as we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our greater community and allies.

Highlights include:

  • Emcee, Ariel Elias, comedian
  • Performances by Nissim Black; The Moshav Band; David Herskowitz, Miami Boys Choir alum and TikTok star; and The Ramaz Upper School Choir
  • Appearance by Montana Tucker, TikTok influencer

We will enter Times Square at Broadway and 47th Street.
