Rabbi Yossi Lipsker (left) says Monday’s (Dec. 19) ceremony on the front lawn of Town Hall was “the first time in history that Saugus had a public Menorah lighting.” Ruth Berg, a 90-year-old Saugus resident, had the honor of pulling the electrical switch to light up the middle bulb of the nine-branched candelabrum used to celebrate the eight-day Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. Saugus officials say they plan to make the Menorah lighting an annual town observance. (Saugus Advocate photo by Mark E. Vogler)
