As Jewish families around the world light their menorahs to celebrate the festival of lights, we are reminded of the story of Chanukah. This story teaches us to fight against all forms of hate and bigotry, with the same tenacity as the Maccabbean revolt against the Greek-Syrian oppressors. Although we are facing more challenges than ever before, the message remains the same, we too will remain resilient.
During such difficult times, you have demonstrated tremendous strength while supporting one another where it was needed the most. From my office to the comfort of your homes, I wish all who celebrate a happy, healthy, and safe celebration.
