    The lighting ceremony of the National Menorah took place this year in Washington, DC, with the beautiful weather setting the stage for a joyous celebration commemorating the first night of Chanukkah.

    The Menorah was lit by Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, the ceremony featured the United States Navy Band and The Three Cantors.

    Emhoff said during his remarks at the Menorah lighting “Anti-Semitism must be condemned unequivocally and without context, on college campuses”.

    “Normally, this is a time of celebration and joy,” he said. “I know right now that might seem a little far-fetched to some of you. I know you’re in pain. I’m in pain. I know a lot of us are feeling unmoored and afraid. We’ve not seen anything like this moment.”

    “We’re seeing the presidents of some of our most elite universities literally unable to denounce calling for the genocide of Jews as antisemitic. That lack of moral clarity is simply unacceptable,” added Emhoff.
