Members of Chabad of East Hampton and the East Hampton community gathered at Main Street and Atlantic Avenue in Amagansett on December 4, which was also 26th of Kislev in the year 5779, to light the third menorah candle for Chanukah. Goldie Baumgarten made delicious treats to share with the crowd. Rabbi Leibel Baumgarten assisted his son, Montauk’s Rabbi Aizik Baumgarten, in lighting the candle, and in leading everyone in singing traditional songs. East Hampton Town Supervisor Peter Van Scoyoc spoke about the meaning of the holiday.
