A group of hasidic Jews in Palo Alto California will be beginning the Hanukkah season by lighting their chocolate menorah.
"We've already made a menorah out of ice, and Legos. Why not chocolate?" said Mushky Baumgarten, Chabad's program coordinator who bought 25 bags of Trader Joe's "Orthodox Union-certified" chocolate chips for melting and painting. "We're trying to reach as many Jews as we can."
No word as to if the menorah will be eaten at some point.
