Rabbi Mendel Scheiman delivers remarks after lighting an electric menorah on the first day of Hanukkah Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2017, at the Old Main Lounge in SIU’s Student Center.

Scheiman runs Chabad of SIU and serves as a prison chaplain for the Illinois Department of Corrections.

“We host this event to help Jewish students in celebrating Hanukkah and spreading this message of freedom and bringing light to darkness,” Scheiman said.
