The world’s largest electronic menorah will shine across South Florida’s skyline during the eight nights of the Jewish “Festival of Lights.”

In a video provided by the Paramount Miami Worldcenter, the 60-story skyscraper’s LED-lit menorah went on display Sunday evening, the first night of the Jewish Festival of Lights.

The 100-foot-tall by 300-foot-wide illuminated image of eight flickering candles placed in a menorah appears across the building’s crown. The display is built with 16,000 LED lights that are embedded in 10,000 panes of high-impact glass which creates a mesmerizing combination of 16.2-million colors. The lights project the words “Happy Hanukkah” and the six-pointed “Star of David.”

“The world’s largest electronic menorah is a shining beacon of belief and celebration,” said Paramount Miami Worldcenter CEO, Daniel Kodsi. “The menorah is lit to celebrate the triumph of light over darkness and is a symbol of truth and justice, which is what all Americans strive for.”

Paramount is currently the country’s largest urban core construction project and the nation’s second-largest real estate development. It is considered to be the most heavily-amenitized residential tower in the United States.
