President Issues Hanukkah Greetings

Yesterday, the White House released a statement (full text) sending warmest wishes from the President and Michelle Obama to all those around the world celebrating Hanukkah. The statement said in part:
Hanukkah is a time to celebrate the faith and customs of the Jewish people, but it is also an opportunity for people of all faiths to recognize the common aspirations we share.... [L]et us reaffirm our commitment to building a better, more complete world for all.
The 8-day festival of Hanukkah begins this evening.
