Asks for local recognition of Hanukkah
To the Editor:
While reading the Dec. 7 edition of The Spectrum, I was delighted there was an article on the Festival of Lights because I thought there might be a mention of Hanukkah, which in Jewish culture is also called the Festival of Lights.
That delight turned to disappointment because there was no mention of the holiday which began Dec. 8.
There was nothing in the newspaper at all, nor is there anything in town I can find celebrating the community's many Jewish people.
I love the holiday season, but I do not celebrate Christmas; I celebrate Hanukkah, as do many people in the community.
I know Christmas trees have been lit on the Green for the past 46 years, and they are beautiful, but I would like to see an acknowledgement of my holiday as well.
