Obama Sends ‘Happy Hanukkah’ Message

President Obama wished Jews in the U.S. and around the world a joyous Chanukah.

The Chanukah story, he said in a message Tuesday, “reminds us to count our blessings, to honor the sacrifices of our ancestors, and to believe that through faith and determination we can work together to build a brighter, better world for generations to come.”

He closed by wishing the “Jewish community around the world” a “Chag Sameach,” Hebrew for joyous holiday.
