Chabad erected more than 15,000 large-scale public menorahs in cities throughout the world for Hanukkah.

The organization reported that it intends to distribute more than 700,000 personal menorahs, 30.8 million candles and 2.5 million holiday guides in 13 languages over the course of the holiday season.

In addition, 5,000 menorahs will appear atop cars around the world, according to the Jewish organization.

Chabad Hanukkah programs in 81 countries are expected to reach 8 million Jews, the organization said.

The Chabad-Lubavitch Aleph Institute intends to provide Hanukkah supplies to Jewish American military and State Department personnel and prison inmates. Jewish inmates in 108 prisons will receive Hanukkah visits.

Large public menorah lightings are scheduled for the front of the White House, at the Kremlin, the Brandenburg Gate and at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.
