Beth David synagogue celebrated the first night of Hanukkah at the nightly sunset service center in their West Hartford synagogue. The synagogue normally has a larger celebration, however, Rabbi Yitzchok Adler, said the service is smaller this year because it coincides with Thanksgiving. “Normally we have a big Hanukkah event but you can’t compete with Thanksgiving,” he said.
