Members of the youth movement Maccabi Hatzair light a torch from a bonfire located near the gravesites of the Maccabees and carry it running. The fire from the torch is distributed to other young runners wearing the uniform of the movement, who bring the torches to 20 communities across Israel. Finally, the fire lights a large Hanukkah Menorah.
