PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL (WFLX) -- A truly one-of-a-kind menorah in Palm Beach Gardens. Some in the Jewish community kicked off the first night of Hanukah with a deli-made all salami Menorah. Fox 29's Ashley Glass reports.
Take a guess. How many slices of salami does it take to create this, the world's first deli-made Menorah. "130" "150" "It's big."
Well it takes so many Rabbi Ezagui with David's Eastside Deli doesn't know. And he helped make it. "It's the one and only and we have it right here in Palm Beach Gardens."
This is how the Deli is helping everyone celebrate the first night of Hanukkah. And the crowd of a few hundred is impressed. "It's the most creative menorah light I have ever heard of." "Very cool. I love salami."
Besides putting on a show, David's Deli helps people all year with profits from their food sales. "Every penny stays right here in the community. It goes to kids in need and older people who can't make their own food." Rabbi Ezagui is hoping others follow the lead of food, music, fellowship, and service all year. "Whatever people can do to help others. We have to help others."
That was Ashley Glass reporting. So what happened to all that meat? Rabbi Ezagui tells us they thought about letting everyone taste it at the end but then figured that might not be a good idea. It did have to sit out for a while.
