Rabbi Avrohom Sternberg, right, of Chabad of Eastern Connecticut and Congregation Ahavath Chesed in New London, braces the structure as Nate Epperson, left, and James Charland, not pictured, of Rogovin Moving and Storage, install the menorah Monday on Union Plaza in downtown New London. The 15-foot-tall menorah, which Sternberg estimates weighs more than one ton, will be first lit on the second night of Hanukkah this Sunday. "I've been helping the rabbi put this thing up for years and I think it's getting heavier," said Epperson.
