Number of candles needed if all 900 member families of Lafayette’s Temple Isaiah light their menorahs for the eight days of Hanukkah.
Number of lights that will decorate the front lawn of Bob and Sue Widmer’s Pleasanton home—one of the premier East Bay venues for viewing extravagant Christmas decorations since 1977.
