The eighth 'candle' was 'lit' Wednesday night on the World's Largest Menorah,   lighting up the sky next to the Reading power station in north Tel Aviv.

The menorah, created by Israel Electric Corporation, is made up of nine aerial platforms including the Shamash ('attendant' candle) which reaches the furthest at a height of 28 meters, and eight lower lights each at 22 meters.

Israel Electric has submitted the huge Hanukka creation to the Guiness Book of Records.
