On behalf of OPSEU’s entire Executive Board, we’d like to wish a happy Hanukkah to the Jewish community and our members and staff celebrating this joyous occasion.
Hanukkah, the Jewish “festival of lights” is a joyous and social occasion – a celebration of miracles, courage, resilience, and standing up for what’s right even against formidable challenges.
Each day at nightfall between Dec. 22 and Dec. 30, families and friends join together to light a candle on the Hanukkah menorah. By the eighth night, the menorah is a brightly burning beacon of hope and optimism.
It’s a beautiful and meaningful celebration. And to all those celebrating it, we wish you peace, love, and joy this Hanukkah season.
