Wasserman Schultz Statement on Chanukah

Around the world, families and friends will come together tonight to light the first candle of Chanukah. We will retell the story of the struggle of a small band of committed Jews fighting to keep their own faith and tradition in the face of a repressive army. We celebrate the miracle that happened in Israel more than 2,000 years ago as we light more candles each night. We reflect on those who are still not free to express their beliefs around the world, while also celebrating the miracles all around us. However you are celebrating, my family and I wish you a holiday filled with joy and meaning!
