This year’s Menorah in the D, held Sunday, Dec. 2, at Campus Martius Park in Downtown Detroit, paid tribute to the 11 victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and also honored eight in the community with 8 in their ages, from ages 8-98.

Though the evening brought rain, the large crowd still enjoyed the lighting of the giant menorah, the refreshments, dancing, singing and more. Officials in attendance were Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, Michigan Attorney General-elect Dana Nessel and U.S. Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D-Mich.).

The event was sponsored by The Shul-Chabad Lubavitch in partnership with the Jewish Federation and Chabad of Greater Downtown Detroit, with support from DTE Energy, Quicken Loans and others.
