Chief Rabbi of Israel Isser Yehuda Unterman lights the first Hanukkah candle at the Western Wall. The 24th torch relay of the Maccabi Hatzair youth movement departs from the Tomb of the Maccabees near Modiin. The racewalker Shaul Ladany carries the torch to the Jewish settlement in Hebron, where the settlers receive it and light a Hannukah menorah. In Jerusalem, the torchbearers pass a torch to Mayor Teddy Kollek by the Western Wall and to President of Israel Zalman Sahzar at his official residence.
