As we celebrate Hanukkah with our families and friends, the menorah stands as a powerful symbol of our strength and traditions, our values and our aspirations, and our people’s ancient and abiding connection to the Land of Israel.

Even as the light of the menorah fills our homes with its warmth and joy, it is also a beacon of peace and hope that has been ours to share with the world for thousands of years. I invite you to view the new video of my reflections on Hanukkah, and the meaning it continues to have for me and my family.
