University President Steven Knapp joined about 200 students in celebrating the sixth night of Hanukkah at a menorah lighting ceremony in Kogan Plaza Monday night.

GW Chabad Rabbi Yehuda Steiner thanked everyone for turning out on the cold, windy night before turning the menorah lighting duties over to Associate Vice President and former Dean of Freshmen Fred Siegel.

Students said they liked that Knapp showed up to participate in the festivities, despite the fact that he is not a member of the Jewish faith.

“It shows great outreach and unity between everyone in the community,” sophomore Jeff Levy said.
