One of the great innovations of the Chabad movement was to encourage public displays of Jewish pride and celebration. Hanukkah menorahs abound all over New York and in the suburbs. The largest menorah in the world (Guinness Book of Records) is set up every year at the intersection of Fifth ave and 59th street in Manhattan, just in front of the Plaza Hotel. On a more modest scale is my Chabad community's menorah sponsored by the Chai Center of Short Hills and the Chai Judaica store.
