Chanukah Message From NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo

“This evening at sundown, members of the Jewish community here in New York and throughout the world, will begin the celebration of Hanukkah.

The ‘Festival of Lights’ is a commemoration of the perseverance and resilience of the Jewish people. The dedication shown by a small yet committed group loyal to their beliefs and way of life is a story that resonates through the ages and is still applicable in our modern lives. It speaks to the miraculous ability of the human spirit to endure, even when a tragic outcome seems certain.

I join with all New Yorkers in remembering the qualities honored during Hanukkah, as these same qualities have made us the Empire State, and home to a diverse array of people, talents and opportunities. We share in celebrating the willingness of all New Yorkers to come together during challenging times to create a better and stronger state for all.

I wish those celebrating Hanukkah a joyous, healthy and safe holiday season.”
