Rahm Emanuel to Light National Menorah

This is interesting. JTA puts national in brackets. I don't see why they should. I believe that ugly 30' steel menorah does actually represent this nation, in its present depraved state.

Emanuel to light ‘national’ menorah

December 9, 2009

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel will light the Chanukah menorah on the Ellipse in front of the White House.

Emanuel will participate in the lighting of what has come to be known as the “national menorah” on Sunday evening, the third night of Chanukah. The U.S. Air Force Band will provide musical accompaniment.

The event is organized by American Friends of Lubavitch and will be recorded for later broadcast on the Web. Information is available at http://nationalmenorah.org.

I don't know Maurice. Like the Hexagram, the menorah too can be a celebration of advent and the yuletide.
