With Christmas Eve and the first night of Hanukkah coinciding, Liberty Station is saluting both holidays with a menorah lighting.

The lighting outside The Lot at 8 p.m. on Saturday will follow two hours of ice skating to traditional Hanukkah music and conclude with the Jewish holiday tradition of eating jelly doughnuts.

“We’re pleased to incorporate our new menorah and lighting ceremony into our Salute the Season festivities,” said Lisa Johnson, CEO of the NTC Foundation, which developed Liberty Station.

“Our hope is to make holidays at Liberty Station as inclusive and welcoming as possible,” she added.

Liberty Station is partnering with The Lot, Fantasy on Ice, Chabad of Downtown and Chabad of Pacific Beach to present the celebration.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for the Jewish community to gather together in celebration of the festival of lights. Public menorahs are a great way to build pride in our community and create a way for families to come together,” explained Rabbi Tiefenbrun of Chabad of Pacific Beach.
