Statement By House Democratic Leader Franklin Sands Regarding Chanukah

“As Florida’s Jewish Community begins its annual celebration of Chanukah, the eight-day festival of light that begins tonight and celebrates the triumph of light over darkness and of spirituality over materialism, I send greetings on behalf of House Democratic Caucus members.

“If there’s a lesson to be learned from Chanukah, a word that literally means dedication, is that from the worst of times people of character and valor survive and thrive and share their triumph with those less fortunate.

“I wish you and your family a peaceful Chanukah. As menorahs glow with light throughout our state, may all eight days of the holiday be warm and bright and bring you happiness.

“Happy Chanukah and Happy Holidays to Everyone!”
