The large pine tree is usually lit at the end of Fair in the Square, which had to be cancelled this year because of the pandemic.

Verona will still light the towering pine tree in front of Town Hall this year, and the nearby menorah, but, because of COVID-19, it will do both without the large public gatherings that have heralded the holiday season in years past.

The tree’s lights will be turned on this Saturday, December 5. Beginning on Thursday, December 10, one light on the menorah will be lit by a member of the community on each night of Hanukkah. Town officials are encouraging the public to walk or drive by to enjoy the lights safely.

Verona began lighting a menorah in 2017 after the former Congregation Beth Ahm donated its menorah to the town. The synagogue closed in May 2017 after eight decades at the corner of Grove and Personnette.
