The Chabad Jewish Center of Naples has a history of creating unusual menorahs for Hanukkah, and this year will be no exception. Last year they built an aluminum menorah that towered more than 30 feet high, and had to be lighted with a cherry picker. This year, said Rabbi Fishel Zaklos, they decided to get the children of the Chabad Hebrew School involved, and create a kid-friendly menorah with the help of the younger members of the congregation.
