This menorah comes from a Long Beach, NY synagogue that suffered severe damage during Hurricane Sandy.  Given the meaning of the Hanukkah celebration as perseverance and victory in the midst struggle, it serves as a fitting reminder of both the holiday and the victims of Sandy who are still recovering.

A couple of weeks ago the White House hosted an early Hanukkah celebration. First Lady Michelle Obama looked radiant in a blue tea length dress.

We'll have photos from tonight's lighting of the National Menorah on the south side of the White House as soon as we can.
