As a part of our #LightingEurope canpaign we are happy and honored to have EMIH Unified Hungarian Jewish Congregation Executive Rabbi Slomó Köves for the fourth candle and Dr Leah Floh, Chairperson of the Mönchengladbach Jewish Community for the Fifth candle with some special words for Chanikah

You can read the translation of Dr Floh here:

My dear Jewish friends in the entire world but especially in Israel!

Dear friends and supporters!

The Jewish Community of Möchengladbach [Northrhein-Westphalia, Germany] and all Jews from throughout Germany want to wish all of you a Happy Chanukah – a festival of lights, of love, of hope and of solidarity.

Please stay healthy or return quickly to good health. Remain optimistic and always remember to support each other.

Dear Shoah survivors, dear Child Survivors: you have great capacity for resilience and with it you could infect others with your positive outlook on life.

I’m convinced that we will be able to celebrate together next year.

Am Israel Chai עם ישראל חי [the people of Israel live!], l’shana haba’ah b’Yerushalayim לשנה הבאה בירושלים‎ [next year in Jerusalem!].

Chag Chanukah Sameach חג חנוכה שמח [Happy Chanukah Holiday!]

Amen!
