Bob Rae has this to say:
“During these eight days of Hanukkah, Jewish families from across Canada and around the world will gather with their loved ones, observe the lighting of the menorah, and celebrate a story of hope and resilience. At this time of celebration, the thoughts of all Canadians will be with the vibrant Jewish community at the heart of our Canadian identity. On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our Parliamentary Caucus, we are proud to say ‘Happy Hanukkah, Chag Sameach!’”
The best part about Hanukkah for this Irish Catholic is the fact that kosher foods will go on sale in about ten days.
