Brooklyn, NY- Yesterday, more than 250 out-of-work New Yorkers attended the 7th Annual Job Fair hosted by State Senator Kevin Parker and Councilmember Jumaane Williams at Brooklyn College’s Student Center. More than 20 organizations and companies – ranging from city and state agencies to independent retailers – connected with potential candidates to share current employment and training opportunities.
"Chanukah is the celebration of miracles, a reminder that all things are possible," Senator Parker said. "As you celebrate the spirit of Chanukah with friends and family, I wish you health, happiness and good fortune." The holiday celebrates a legendary victory of the Maccabees, a band of Jews, over a Greek army that occupied the Holy Land. After the battle, the victorious Maccabees found only a one day supply of oil in the temple to light the lamps. But the oil burned miraculously for eight days, the story says.
