London Eye to transform into a menorah for Chanukah!

If you thought the traditional Trafalgar Square menorah was London’s most visible celebration of Chanukah, think again as the iconic London Eye is set to join the party for the first time next month.

The 32 pods on the 400ft tall wheel will be lit on 5 December to symbolise a Menorah as they spin after an initiative by Jewish Leadership Council, in partnership with Jewish News.

The lastminute.com London Eye is visited by more than three million people annually and seen by more millions more, making it London’s most popular tourist attraction.

Claudia Mendoza & Michelle Janes, Co-CEOs of the Jewish Leadership Council said: “We are thrilled that we are able to bring even more light to Chanukah this year together with the Jewish News through our partnership with the lastminute.com London Eye. This iconic landmark will join our Trafalgar Square Menorah in lighting up our capital city along with many others around the county.

“We hope that this marking can become a regular event to mark Chanukah and celebrate the richness of cultural diversity in the UK.”

JN co-publishers Richard Ferrer and Justin Cohen added: “This will surely be one of the most visible celebrations of Chanukah in the world and is once again a wonderful expression of Britain’s place as a welcoming home to so many faiths and cultures. Huge thanks must go to the bosses of the London Eye and Jewish Leadership Council for bringing this vision to reality and adding much-needed light to the capital after a period of so much darkness.”

The JLC and Jewish News will be running a prize draw with the chance to win a London Eye pod experience for up to 16 people worth £450.

To enter just take a photograph of lighting the Chanukah candles or a public Chanukah lighting and tag the JLC and Jewish News on social media (Facebook, Instagram or Twitter) with the hashtag #ShareTheLight.

The competition will close on the last night of Chanukah and winners will be informed after the festival ends.
