“I am delighted to pass on my best wishes to all those celebrating Hanukkah across the borough.
“Hanukkah or Chanukah is the Jewish festival of rededication, also known as the festival of lights. Traditions during the eight-day celebration include lighting the candles of the menorah and reciting blessings.
“Celebrating Hanukkah and other major faith events together helps us to understand each other’s customs and traditions and develop a culture of mutual respect.
I wish you a happy Hanukkah!”
Councillor Tony Newman, leader of the council
