    Hanukah in Santa Monica, like Christmas, conforms to city's new ban on unattended religious displays


    Students of the Jewish Chabad-Lubavitch sect dance to welcome the 1st night of Hanukah- 3-blocks from the Santa Monica beach on the Pacific Ocean. Atheists recently got the City of Santa Monica, California to prohibit leaving religious holiday displays (such as the extensive Nativity-Scene diaramas which had overlooked the beach). The Hanukah Menorah which for over a decade had remained on the Promenade for the 8-days of Hanukah, like the Nativity displays, now can only be displayed during a live celebration. The Menorah in the background was removed at the 11pm Saturday curfew.
