Janet, the point is that's how NOT to publicize the miracle. Instead of acting like a NYC whacko, and getting deserved wierd stares, we respectfully light the Menorah.

Technically it was a milk crate and not a soapbox janet! Merry Chanuka to all and to all 8 good nites!

Sense of Humor

Janet...where's your sense of humor? Have you ever been to Times Square where this was filmed? This young man on his soapbox was VERY mild in comparison to what goes on there. There's no commandment that we Jews shouldn't have a sense of humor and have fun with our holidays, especially one like Chanukah. Lighen up!!!
