A Walk in Williamsburg, Brooklyn - Part 3

A few more shots from my walk in Williamsburg last Sunday. Chanukah is coming and the events are beginning to happen. It's one of the two rabbinically ordained festivals (the other being Purim) and celebrates the victory of the Maccabees in throwing off the yoke of the Syrian Greeks who wanted the Jews to assimilate and accept the supposed superiority of Greek logic over Jewish faith in G-d.
