Yes, it's kosher; rabbi plans to light salami menorah for Hanukkah

December 19, 2008

A 15-foot-high Hanukkah menorah made of kosher salami? That's what you get from a Jewish deli with a sense of humor, if not tradition.

David's East Side Deli in Palm Beach Gardens will hold a public ceremony to light the salami spectacle at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, the first night of Hanukkah.

"It's going to be an unbelievable sight to see," said Rabbi Shlomo Ezagui of Chabad of Palm Beach. "Head to toe salami, baby!"

Chabad runs the establishment, 4580 PGA Blvd. Call 561-691-9293 or go to
The salami will be wrapped around a thin metal frame, topped with lettuce and bread, the rabbi said. Guests will be treated to free food and Hanukkah music.

If all goes well, David's may try to get the salami menorah into Guinness World Records next year. — Marc Freeman
