STATE SENATOR PARKER SENDS WARM GREETINGS TO FAMILIES CELEBRATING Hanukkah
“Wishing you a holiday season bright with joy & rich with memories during the Festival of Lights season”
(Brooklyn, NY) – Senator Parker wishes you and your family a very happy Hanukkah filled with peace and love. The Jewish faith celebrates Hanukkah, or the Festival of Lights, for eight days beginning at sundown December 11th.
“Hanukkah is the celebration of miracles, a reminder that all things are possible,” Senator Parker said. “As you celebrate the spirit of Hanukkah 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 goes.
Wishing you a festival of lights sparkling with fun and lit up with joy!
