Rabbi Shneur Silberberg took a small group of teens to Oxford to show solidarity from the Jewish community and to kindle a menorah on the last night of Chanukah.

After meeting with local teens concerned about the students at Oxford High, Rabbi Shneur Silberberg of Bais Chabad Torah Center in West Bloomfield decided to take a small group of them to the school on Sunday, Dec. 5, to show solidarity from the Jewish community and to kindle a menorah on the last night of Chanukah. They brought latkes and donuts to share.

“It wasn’t easy in the gusting wind and rain to get the menorah kindled,” Rabbi Silberberg shared on Facebook, “but one teen, who had recently played football against shooting victim Tate Myre, made the blessings and kindled all eight flames.

“There’s darkness out there, for sure, but there is so much good, too,” he wrote. “The menorah and the hundreds of bouquets of flowers nearby reminded us of that.
“May G-d bring comfort and strength to the victims and families of the Oxford school shooting. May the world know no more pain.”
