Mukasey to light menorah

Michael Mukasey, the U.S. attorney-general, will light the Chabad Lubavitch chanukiyyah on the Ellipse in front of the White House.

Mukasey, who is an Orthodox Jew, will light what has come to be known as the "national menorah" on Tuesday evening, the first night of Hanukah. The U.S. Marine Band will provide musical accompaniment.

The event is organized by American Friends of Lubavitch and will be broadcast on satellite radio and on the web. Information is available at http://nationalmenorah.org/. (Jewish Telegraph Agency, November 30, 2007)

"Rabbi Levi Shemtov, Chabad's representative in Washington, bears certain similarities to the menorah whose lighting he engineers each year on the White House lawn: big, warm and impossible to ignore...

"Shemtov's highest profile event is still the menorah lighting on the White House lawn. This year's lighting will be held Sunday at 4 p.m., with a musical peformance by the National Menorah Electric Dreidel Orchestra and The Three Cantors. Honors will go to Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, who is Jewish.

"It's a brazen mark of influence, especially as the menorah lighting claims to speak for an American Jewish community that traditionally has been uncomfortable with displays of belief on public land." ("Chabad's man makes mark in D.C.," Ron Kampeas, Washington Jewish Week, December 12, 2005)

This brazen display of influence began during Jimmy Carter's presidency:



President Jimmy Carter lights a menorah in 1979 in Lafayette Park, across the street from the North Portico of the White House.


28 years later a 30' tall eyesore appears on the White House lawn each Chanukah. But such brazen displays of influence are not at all limited to Washington D.C.

NYC to light world's largest menorah

NEW YORK (AP) — What organizers say is the world's largest menorah will be lit every night during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, beginning Dec. 4, at 59th Street and Fifth Avenue, near Central Park.

The menorah, sponsored by the Lubavitch Youth Organization, stands 32 feet tall. The lighting of the gigantic candelabra will take place at 5:30 p.m. each night through Dec. 11, except for the Friday-Saturday Sabbath observance, when the lightings will take place at 3:40 p.m. on (Friday) Dec. 7 and 8:30 p.m. on (Saturday) Dec. 8.

The menorah is lit with oil lamps protected from the wind by specially designed glass chimneys. A cherry-picker crane provided by the Con Edison electric utility will lift the lamplighters up to kindle the flames.

If you're elsewhere during the holiday and you'd like to take part in a Hanukkah celebration, check out http://www.chabad.org/hanukkahevents, which lists menorah-lightings in 486 cities in 27 countries. The holiday events, sponsored by Chabad-Lubavitch, a Jewish outreach organization, are open to the public. (USA Today, November 29, 2007)

Listen, the Lubavitch put up a 30-foot menorah outside of Independence Hall in Philadelphia every year...Last year I complained to the US Park Service official in Philadelphia about this...at first, they thought I was crazy, especially when I asked whether a 30-foot crescent could be displayed at Ramadan, or a 30-foot Cross could be erected during
Holy Week...they told me this would be permitted, one merely had to file a request and pay a certain fee...now, next to this menorah, which by the way was higher than the American flag on the Mall, was a tiny, and very unnatractive looking 'creche' or Nativity scene...it was completely dwarfed by the menorah...so I asked the US Park rep who sponsored the 'creche' (Chabbad Lubavitch got the permit for the menorah)...she told me the "Catholic League'...so I did some checking...there is no Catholic League I could find in Philadelphia, but I did find a website for their HQ in NYC...so I
called them to find out why they
hadn't reserved the space where the
menorah was standing...they thought I was nuts, and after talking to a PR person about this,
I found out that they were clueless...now, who is the 'Catholic League' and where was the Archdiocese of Philadelphia
in regards to this?

These large steel menorahs have gone up all over. They put a huge one in front of the New York Courts in Brooklyn.

I have been seeing permenant steel menorahs go up in front of synagogues/temples all over New York - I have seen one attached to the top of a car as it was driven around.

Me thinkest that the menorah and its association with the Maccabbees (I really don't know the story) but the military/soldier connotation of the Maccabbees has been transferred to the menorah so it is now a symbol of 'conquest'

While this is hardly surprising, the utter lack of he Philly diocese in at least setting up a decent creche is indicative of the collapse of the enture Roman Catholic machinery in the this country.

The Catholic League with its blowhard 'leader' Bill Donohue got its seed money and he gets his 6 figure salary paid by neo-cons - that shows you how 'authentic' that group is.

This is a further sign that our entire culture is being Judaicized.

Speaqking of menorahs Maurice, did you know that the Hassids had a menorah on the Great Wall Of China a few years back? And that an increasing number of kosher food plants are now in China? How powerful are these Hassids?

selective enforcement of law is proof that there is no rule of law. These symbols should be toppled unless there is a plurality of religious symbols. However, the one toppling them will be charged with a 'hate' crime but at this point, with the water boiling, maybe we should be willing to suffer a little

I don't know, but I'm sure most rabbis would sell you an amulet telling you it could lead you to one.
