"Tonight, across New York, the nation and the world, millions will come together in a display of hope and faith to light the first candle in the Festival of Lights.
As families and friends gather to light the menorah, it is yet another rich tradition that reminds us all - regardless of race or religion - to count our blessings, to honor the sacrifices of those that have come before us, and to believe that through faith and goodwill, we can work together to create a safer and stronger world.
From my family to yours, have a safe, prosperous and peaceful Hanukkah. Hanukkah Sameach."
