|Lighting the menorah underwater|
(Scroll down for video) About forty disabled people were seen on video lighting Hanukkah candles underwater, according to a video uploaded to the Internet by Channel 2 News.
Members of the diving club "Aqua Sport" decided to do something original and exciting for Hanukkah.
The group of divers, including forty disabled divers, lit the Hanukkah menorah underwater in Eilat.
"As part of our activities we do a diving course for disabled people," Eran Ashkenazi, a diving instructor at Aqua Sport, said.
"We lowered the menorah, which was placed inside a box, into the water, balancing it with ropes. We emptied the box from water using air pressure," he said.
Divers put candles and a lighter inside the sealed box. Ron Pitkovski, a volunteer at the club who built the menorah, lit it.
"Our group has members without legs and others who are blind," Ashkenazi said.
"This was something unusual, and everyone was very excited. It's just great to see people with disabilities having fun," Amir Weizman, who recorded the event, said.
