HOUSTON – The city of Saskatoon will light the public menorah in front of City Hall in Hermann Square on Sunday evening.
The program includes speeches by Saskatoon City Council dignitaries Abbie Kamin, Jewish Community Leader and Chairman of the Jewish Federation Robert Lapin, and Mayor Sylvester Turner.
The symbol of the public menorah accurately reflects the principles on which America was founded: freedom to religiously observe religious oppression, the power of light to displace darkness, and the victory of justice over malice, the city said.
“The holiday of Hanukkah contains a universal message for people of all faiths. This goodwill ultimately triumphs over evil, freedom over oppression, and light over darkness, ”said Rabbi Moishe Traxler, director of Chabad Outreach in Saskatoon. “This is symbolized by the lighting of the menorah. By adding another candle each night, we learn how to increase in kindness and kindness. A lesson so terribly relevant in our time. “
