This year, for the only time in recorded history, the US Thanksgiving celebration coincides with the first day of Channukah. For this auspicious occasion, Mayor Eddie Francis joined the Windsor Jewish community for the fifth annual lighting of the community menorah at Devonshire Mall.
As in years past, this event was intended to collect for a charitable cause. This year's recipient was the Street Help / Unit 7 Homeless Services. The socks and mittens collected by the sponsors (Shaarey Zedek, Shaar Hashomayim, Temple Beth El, Windsor Regional Hospital and Massey High School) will come in very handy for this bitter, cold winter.
