For 20 years the property on Avenue T near E. 62nd Street has lit up Mill Basin in December. The Brooklyn Chanukah House, which was forced to close because of Hurricane Sandy, reopened Wednesday.  

According to News 12, members of Yeshivat BitaHon celebrated the reopening and participated in the lighting of the menorah.

In 2006, the owners of the house, Arielle and Dan Teitelbaum were presented with a proclamation from Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz naming our home, the official “Brooklyn Chanukah House”.

Some past decorations include a six foot tall menorah that became the centerpiece on their front lawn in 2005 and in 2006, an inflatable teddy bear holding a dreidel.

Also, in 2007, they had a Happy Chanukah sign and a four foot tall dreidel with color changing lights. In 2008, they added three new pieces, the menorah with the dancing rabbis and the two Happy Chanukah signs on the second floor(one in English and one in Hebrew).
