Justin Trudeau Lights Menorah, Melts Our Hearts

Say what you will about Justin Trudeau — he looks damn good in a kippah.

The new Canadian prime minister stopped by the Liberal Party headquarters in Ottawa to light the Hanukkah candles on Tuesday. In true Canadian fashion, he posted a video to with an accompanying bilingual message.

“Stopped by Liberal HQ to light the office menorah on night 3 of Hannukah! // J’ai fait un arrêt au siège social du PLC pour allumer la menora au troisième soir de la Hanoukka!”

The oil may have burned for eight days, but the Trudeau heat will sear our hearts forever.
