US President wishes Jews a happy Hanukkah, pledges to fight anti-Semitism

News Desk

US President Donald Trump issued a greeting to the Jewish people on the occasion of the holiday of Hanukkah, which begins at sundown today.

“Melania and I send our warmest greetings to our Jewish brothers and sisters in the United States, in Israel, and around the world celebrating Hanukkah.

For eight nights, Jewish families and friends will come together to engage in the lighting of the menorah. This special tradition started more than 2,000 years ago during the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, which followed a trying period when Jews were persecuted for practicing their faith.

Unfortunately, Jews today continue to face many different forms of violence, hatred, and bigotry around the globe. We remember all those from the Tree of Life—Or L’Simcha Congregation—whose lives were tragically taken in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, this past October. As one Nation, we pledge our continued love and support for the victims, their families, and the community, and we pray that the victims’ families find some measure of peace and comfort during this holiday season.

Over the coming days, may the warming glow of each candle on the menorah help fill homes and hearts with love and happiness. Together, we reaffirm the truth that light will always break through the darkness. We send our very best wishes for a blessed and happy Hanukkah.

  1. Thank you to President Trump for your warm wishes .Your suppport of Israel has been greater then any other American President . Though you are often maligned by the progressive left, some of whom are liberal Jews, you remain steadfast in your support for the state of Israel. The move of the US embassy to Jerusalem was a righteous and brave action! Appointing Nikki Haily as UN ambassador was brilliant. Never before has any ambassador from the USA stood up to defend Israel in the way she has done. Her zeal for Israel was inspirational to behold. I as an American support you and want to say “ You are my President”!
