Warmest Hanukkah greetings from President Trump and Melania

“Melania and I send our warmest greetings to our Jewish brothers and sisters in the United States, in Israel, and around the world celebrating Hanukkah,” said President Donald Trump in a message marking the eight-day festival. “This special tradition started more than 2,000 years ago during the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, which followed a trying period when Jews were persecuted for practicing their faith.”
President Trump went on to say: “Unfortunately, Jews today continue to face many different forms of violence, hatred, and bigotry around the globe. We remember all those from the Tree of Life—Or L’Simcha Congregation—whose lives were tragically taken in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, this past October.” Trump concluded by wishing everyone a peaceful season “to be a light in the sometimes dark world.”

    Chag Urim Sameach! Happy Hanukkah! It is HaShem who chose His people and grants them victory over the enemies. The light repeals the darkness and the chosen few win over the wicked multitude. It makes happy to know that Israel wins!

    Our Rabbis taught: during the last forty years before the destruction of the Temple, the lot for the Lord (on Yom Kippur) did not come up in the right hand; nor did the crimson-colored strap become white (on the neck of the scapegoat); nor did the western-most light shine; and the doors of the Hekal (Temple) would open by themselves
