One over the eight in Essex

I hope you had yourselves a merry Chanucah. They certainly did at Buckhurst Hill Chabad House in Essex, with this whisky-filled menorah.

The 7ft lamp was made of pipes containing 65 litres of single malt donated by the Tullibardine Distillery in the Scottish Highlands.

A tap fitted to the stem of the menorah ensured that Rabbi Odom Brandman (pictured) and company could enjoy a regular flow of l’chaims.

Beats doughnuts any day.
