[Video below.] Tuesday night, it was Jewish Heritage Night at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
19,000 spectators gave the loudest standing ovation of the night to Benny Friedman for his stellar national anthem rendition, as well as to the Maccabeats for their halftime Chanukah performance.
Visible from every corner of the arena and captured on the giant screens was a large menorah, lit by Elias Rosner from Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey.
Signaling the beginning of the game, Chanukah messages were delivered by Rabbi Shimon Hecht and Maddie Rosen from Teaneck, New Jersey.
