Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, officially begins at sunset this Saturday, December 8, and runs through Sunday, December 16, 2012.

If you’ll be in the New York City area during this time, you can celebrate Hanukkah with the lighting of the world’s largest menorah, designed by the “Father of Kinetic Art,” Yaacov Agam.

The 32-foot-high,  gold-colored, 4,000-pound steel menorah stands in Grand Army Plaza (Fifth Avenue and West 59th Street, across the street from The Plaza hotel). Every holiday evening at 5:30 pm, a candle will be lit—save for the Sabbath, during which the lighting will be at 3:30 pm on Friday and 8:30 pm on Saturday.
