BOSTON (AP) — Gov. Deval Patrick and other top state politicians are joining members of the state’s Jewish community to light an 18-foot menorah in the Statehouse to mark Hanukkah.

The menorah scheduled to be lit Monday at The Grand Staircase is so large that a scissor-lift is required to lift Patrick, House Speaker Robert DeLeo and Rabbi Rachmiel Liberman to reach it.

The ceremony will include a musical interlude featuring the U.S. Navy Band and vocal presentations by students from the Schechter Day School.

The event is co-sponsored by Congregation Lubavitch Synagogue in Brookline.

The eight-day festival started at sundown last Wednesday.
