It is the first Ukrainian birthday of the Jewish Hanukkah today. By the decree of the President, this holiday, as well as Rosh Hashanah and Pesach, has been recognized as a national holiday. Therefore, congratulations on Hanukkah are addressed not only to Jews, but to all Ukrainians starting from this year.
Hanukkah is a joyous holiday that lasts eight days. This is a holiday of the victory of light over darkness, of good over evil, a holiday of miracles.
I want to wish everyone bright Hanukkah miracles during these bright and cheerful eight days of Hanukkah. May all the candles lit in the hanukkiah unite their light and bring comfort and peace to your homes.
Chag Hanukkah Sameach!
