Just weeks after Paris saw some of its darkest days, an estimated 6,000 people gathered to add some much-needed light to the city on Sunday by lighting the menorah at the base of the Eiffel Tower.

The annual menorah lighting celebration is a decades old French tradition, and is organized annually by the Chabad in Paris.

"Hannuka celebrates the freedom of expression, both individually and collectively. It demonstrates the superiority of light over darkness, of right over might, of hope over fear,” said an official at the ceremony.
