Archbishop Nelson J. Pérez issued the following greetings to the Jewish community in the Philadelphia region on the occasion of Hanukkah, which begins at sundown on Thursday, Dec. 10 and ends at sundown on Friday, Dec. 18.
Dear Friends in the Jewish Community,
Greetings to all of my brothers and sisters of the Jewish faith tradition as you celebrate the beautiful, “Festival of Lights.” Please accept my prayerful best wishes, along with those of the clergy, religious, and faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
As you light the menorah and recall the glory of the Temple’s re-dedication may you be illuminated by the brightness of joy and hope amidst the darkness of these challenging times.
Most Reverend Nelson J. Pérez
Archbishop of Philadelphia
