MADISON, Wis. — Madison’s Jewish community celebrated the third night of Hanukkah at Hilldale Mall Tuesday.

Jewish leaders lit a 10-foot menorah at sundown. The event also included a chocolate gelt drop sponsored by the Madison Fire Department and a “dro-norah” — a drone flying around a menorah.

“Every night we add another candle and do a little bit more,” Rabbi Avremel Matusof of the Chabad of Madison said.

Hanukkah is a bit earlier this year; the Jewish Festival of Lights began Sunday night and wraps up this weekend.
