The Gants Hill giant Menorah, which is the tallest and oldest of the six public menorahs displayed across the borough, attracted a large crowd of some 250 people at its lighting ceremony.

Now, in its 33rd year, the Menorah, which was placed there by the Chabad Lubavitch Centre, was lit on December 16.

Rabbi Aryeh Sufrin MBE said he was delighted to welcome the Mayor of Redbridge Linda Huggett and Ilford North MP Wes Streeting, who both addressed the assembled with messages of peace and hope.

He added: “I’m delighted to welcome such distinguished guests amongst our excited crowd, which shows the strength of this wonderful borough and the good relationship that our Chabad Centre has with the leadership of Redbridge.

“Through this Festival of Lights, Chabad is able to draw together young and old onto the streets of Redbridge bringing light and joy to our streets, dispelling any negative darkness. This is a great borough to live in, its diversity links us all together in a unique way”.
