The ceremony marked the final night of the Jewish holiday for the group dedicated to reaching “every Jew” in Seattle.
Sunday’s crowd huddled together on the promenade overlooking the Volunteer Park reservoir and — somewhere through the clouds — the city and the Space Needle beyond.
Volunteer Park’s holiday season, meanwhile, continues this week with the annual Holiday in the Park slated to bring caroling and hundreds of luminaria to the park Thursday.
