Swig of Swig Equites lights world's largest menorah

NEW YORK, NY In celebration of Chanukah, Kent Swig, president of Swig Equities, LLC, joined Rabbi Shmuel Butman in lighting the world’s largest menorah on December 6, marking the fifth night of Chanukah. "I am honored and thrilled to have been invited once again by Rabbi Shmuel Butman to light the world's largest Chanukah Menorah,” said Kent Swig. “In these challenging times, it was very meaningful to me to participate in the expression of the Menorah’s universal message of light over darkness, freedom over oppression and liberty over tyranny,” Swig continued. Located at Fifth Ave. in front of The Plaza Hotel, the giant menorah is a 32-foot high, gold-colored, 4,000-pound steel structure that features genuine oil lamp and glass chimneys to protect the light from strong winds.
