Statement by Liberal Leader Bob Rae on the Celebration of Hanukkah

TORONTO– Liberal Leader Bob Rae made the following statement today on Hanukkah:

“During these eight days of Hanukkah, Jewish families from across Canada and around the world will gather with their loved ones, observe the lighting of the menorah, and celebrate a story of hope and resilience.
