In the weeks following Hamas’ attack on Israel on October 7, hate crimes and anti-Semitism increased across the world. During Hanukkah, the festival of lights, Jewish families light a candelabra called a menorah every evening for eight nights. As the first night of Hanukkah approaches, we want to hear the perspectives of Jewish communities and families in the United States and around the world.
Do you feel safe placing such a visible and public symbol of Jewish identity on your window this year, amid a surge in anti-Semitic incidents? Or will you feel a renewed sense of pride when you light your menorah this year?
