Union Square menorah lighting ceremony

 One of my favorite annual events to photograph in San Francisco is the lighting of the 25-foot tall Bill Graham menorah in Union Square.   
 Every year Rabbi Yosef Langer, executive director of Chabad of S.F. lights the menorah.  But first he lights candles through the crowd with a large torch.
 bringing light and smiles in his wake.
 After that, Rabbi Langer climbs the stairs and lights the menorah.
If you get a chance check out one of the nights before hanukkah ends!
