Kansas Statehouse To Mark Hanukkah

KSAL StaffDecember 2, 2013

Gov. Sam Brownback will help mark the eighth night of Hanukkah during a ceremony at the Kansas Statehouse.

Wednesday evening’s event will feature the lighting of the menorah by Brownback, Lt. Col. Moran Omer of the Israel Defense Force and Spec. Eliezer Godblatt of the Army’s 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley.

Secretary of Labor Lana Gordon, members of the Legislature and hundreds of members of Jewish communities from across Kansas plan to be on hand.

Organizers say there will be a parade of lights with cars and buses with menorahs on top driving to Topeka from across the state.

The evening is sponsored by Chabad of Kansas and will be conducted by Rabbis Zalman Teichtel and Mendy Wineberg.
