WESTWOOD (CBSLA) — With Chanukah set to begin at sundown this coming Sunday a historic 17th-century menorah is being shipped from Chabad Lubavitch in Westwood to Los Angeles City Hall.

The Katowitz Menorah, which survived the Holocaust in Poland, is meant to symbolize the light of freedom from oppression.

The holiday commemorates the re-dedication of the holy temple in Jerusalem.

A candle will be lit every day for eight days beginning Sunday.
