How the world’s largest Hanukkah menorah makes it to New York City

  • For the eight days of Hanukkah, a 32-foot (9.75m)-tall menorah lights up New York City’s midtown.
  • For the rest of the year, the world’s largest menorah lives in a welding shop owned by a Catholic man. 
  • But owning and fixing up the menorah is good business — it brings in $US40,000 ($AU56,371) a year in setup costs.
  • New York City’s menorah started a trend for big Hanukkah celebrations around the globe.
