HAPPY HANUKKAH. CONGRESSMAN DAVID CICILLINE.


December 12, 2017  
Dear David,
At sundown tonight, the Jewish community will observe the first night of Hanukkah. This wonderful holiday commemorates the story of the Maccabees who fought for freedom, and whose incredible courage serves as a powerful reminder of the spirit of resilience that has defined the Jewish community for generations. Like so many of you, I’m looking forward to spending time with my family, lighting the menorah and reflecting on the past year.

Every year, this Festival of Lights reminds us that even in the darkest of times, the human spirit has the capacity to shine brightly. This year in particular, we are mindful of the importance of staying true to our principles and our faith as we work to make the world a more just and peaceful place for all.

I wish everyone celebrating tonight a very Happy Hanukkah.
Warm Regards,

David Cicilline
Member of Congress
