Hanukkah floated Downtown on Dec. 3, as local children explored the Traveling Noah’s Ark during a holiday celebration at the Jewish


Heritage Museum, organized by Chabad Battery Park City. Most of the animals on the ark were props, but some — including a llama — were live and (one would assume) happy to be part of the Festival of Lights.  Rabbi Chaim Zaklos of  Chabad had a little trouble with the wind,  but he was able to light the nine-foot-tall menorah on the festival’s seventh and next to last night.
