Monsey residents celebrate final night of Hanukkah after attack

Posted: Updated:

One day after the attack, Monsey residents showed the world no act of hate will bring the Jewish community down.

Hundreds turned out for a parade on the eighth and final night of Hanukkah.

Many in attendance said they won’t not let the violence change how they live or what they believe. "It's like extra, extra, extra significant and beautiful. It's a real celebration of us as a people, our religion, our culture, our identity," says Rikki Herbst, of Monsey.

Video also shows Rabbi Chaim Rottenberg and his followers singing and dancing at a synagogue next door to where the attack took place and where they continued Hanukkah celebrations.
