Lighting the Chanukiah in New York City

Lighting the Chanukiah New York December 2010

Michael Wainstein, Rabbi Shmuel Butman, New York City Comptroller John C. Liu, Kent Swig Lighting the Chanukiah, NYC December 2010

I was so honored and thrilled to have been invited once again by Rabbi Shmuel Butman to light the World’s Largest Chanukah Menorah located on Fifth Avenue in front of the Plaza Hotel here in New York City.

With me on the second night of Chanukah on December 2nd, was Michael Weinstein and New York City Controller John Lui.  In these difficult times, when the forces of darkness can seem so strong, it was so meaningful for me to be able to respond with an extra measure of light by participating in physically expressing the Menorah’s universal message of light over darkness, freedom over oppression, and liberty over tyranny.”

May the Menorah’s universal light be an inspiration to all.
