Florida Democratic Party statement as Hanukkah begins

At sunset on Sunday November 28, 2021, Jewish communities across our nation and the world began celebrating Hanukkah.

In recognition of this important religious observance, Florida Democratic Party Chair Manny Diaz issued the following statement:

“The Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is an observance that holds important lessons for adherents of all religions. It reminds us of the strength we can find in faith, the value of determination and the power of light to overcome darkness in the world. It also provides us an opportunity to celebrate and appreciate the great and varied contributions of Jewish Americans to life in our great nation.

“To those who celebrate this holiday, Chanukah Sameach. May your Hanukkah be filled with happiness, prosperity, togetherness and health.”
