Righting a wrong, lighting a menorah in Cambridge

Relighting the Cambridge Common menorah

Photo by Ron Newman

Ron Newman attended a ceremony on Cambridge Common tonight where residents and officials honored the people who put a large menorah back up Sunday afternoon after some guy on a bike went to the effort to knock it down.

The suspect, described by Cambridge Police as "a white male dressed all in black and riding a black bicycle," remains at large.

but just for this ceremony, Chabad temporarily replaced the light-bulb fixtures with oil-burning lamps.

Design could be more curvy! Looking for rounded design public menorahs https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_menorah

Designers/Artists/Sculptors/Architects/Design Schools' students can create curvy public menorahs.

Low center of gravity, good design. A good idea!

Time for curvy design, for rounded design of important Public Menorahs, for example in the spirit of Frank Gehry https://www.google.com/search?q=frank+gehry+sketches&tbm=isch

No longer the rehashed angular sculpted types reangled from angular swastika https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika

you should go to the Museum of Fine Arts, where quite a few are on display in various galleries. The MFA had a big free Chanukah event Wednesday night, which included tours of their Judaica collection.

Old Judaica designs are refreshed for example by young designers from italian arts schools.

It's a standard Chabad menorah. They believe the angular design is authentic: https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/3523185/jewish/Why-Insist...
