Bronxville celebrated Hanukkah Tuesday by lighting a menorah near the Metro-North train stop.
The ceremony was hosted by Chabad Jewish center of Bronxville after some residents spent years pushing for a public event to recognize the Festival of Lights.
Rabbi Sruli Deitsch says there are a lot of misconceptions about the holiday, and says it can be celebrated by anyone.
"We fight hate through doing good things, we fight darkness through lighting a candle, and that's going to leave beauty the menorah represents,” he says.
Hanukkah is celebrated for eight nights and ends Monday.
