In Rapid City during Hanukah, Jews gather at Main Street Square for eight nights to light the menorah. The first night was Dec. 24, and the last night is Dec. 31. People gather just before sunset to sing Hanukah songs and celebrate the resiliency of the Jewish people.
The menorah lighting occurs every night at sunset, at about 5:10 p.m., ending with Dec. 31.
