The annual world-famous lighting ceremony of the National Menorah on The Ellipse in front of the White House took place today in Washington, DC, with thousands attending.

The annual event is sponsored by American Friends of Lubavitch (Chabad) through its National Menorah Council and is organized by Rabbi Levi Shemtov.

The event featured a special musical performance by violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman and world-renowned cantor Maestro Itche Meir Helfgot with Hankus Netsky.
