    The Governor of New Jersey officially began the Chanukah Celebrations with 100 Jewish leaders at Drumthwacket, NJ, the official residence of the state’s Governor.

    The Governor and First Lady Tammy recently returned from their first state visit to Israel. Israeli Ambassador Dani Dayan spoke about the Governor’s friendship and dedication to Israel, and the Governor remarked that he was proud to be an ‘honorary Jew’ on this Chanukah.

    The Governor was emotional as he spoke of the Menorah being lit. The Menorah was brought to America by the father of NJ Assemblyman Gary Schaer, the only Shomer Shabbat person serving in the New Jersey Legislature. The Menorah has served proudly in the Schaer Famiky for more than 100 years, and represented the victory of light over darkness.

    The Governor and First Lady participated in the Pre- Chanukah Lighting Ceremony, and all participants sang a Chanukah song.

    The Governor’s Chanukah Program was attended by many community leaders and rabbis from throughout New Jersey, including Chabad Rabbis Yosef Carlebach and Mendy Carlebach of Chabad House at Rutgers University.
