For the first time in recent memory, the diverse organizations representing Yale’s Jewish community came together over the weekend for a single event — a festive menorah-lighting on Beinecke Plaza on Sunday evening.

The Jewish heritage organization Chabad at Yale sponsored and coordinated the event — which celebrated the sixth night of the eight-day Jewish holiday of Hanukkah — for the second straight year, but for the first time this year the group teamed up with the Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale, AEPi fraternity, AEPhi sorority, Jews and Muslims, the Chai Society, the School of Management Jewish Student Association and the Jewish Law Students Association.
