(Washington D.C.) - U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement on the beginning of Hanukkah:

“Tonight, my family along with Jewish families across America and around the globe will celebrate Hanukkah, the festival of lights. In bringing loved ones together to recount the blessings of unexpected triumphs, we can be grateful for the gifts we have received, and dedicate ourselves to making a better world for us all.

The story of Hanukkah teaches us that with faith, even a small group can rise up against their oppressors and make miracles happen. So together, as we light the Hanukkah menorah, we have a wonderful opportunity to re-commit ourselves to the ideals of spreading freedom and justice, the very highest values of our great nation.

Tonight and throughout this festival of lights, I wish you and your families a very Happy Hanukkah.”
