“May the lights of Chanukah usher in a better world for all humankind.” ~Author Unknown
To all of my Jewish friends and constituents, I wish you all a happy Chanukah celebration, and may you all enjoy eight days of peace, happiness, and joy with your loved ones.
Also, this afternoon I will be joining with Rabbi Liberman and many state officials, including Governor Patrick, Speaker DeLeo, and Senate President Murray in the lighting of the State House Menorah in recognition of Chanukah. Today’s lighting of the Menorah is open to the public and will take place in Nurse’s Hall on the 2nd floor of the State House beginning at 4:00pm.
At 5:30pm tonight, I also plan to attend the Temple Ahavat Achim Menorah lighting in Gloucester, where the world’s first Lobster Trap Menorah will be lit.
