Governor Palin: Happy Hanukkah


As Jewish families gather this week to celebrate the Festival of Lights, Todd and I would like to wish them a very Happy Hanukkah. This beautiful holiday commemorates the story of the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem, following years of struggle by the Maccabees, when one-day’s worth of consecrated oil miraculously lasted for eight. This story never ceases to inspire because it reminds us of the power of faith, hope, and perseverance.

The modern State of Israel is the living embodiment of the Hanukkah miracle – a country that was not expected to survive the onslaught of its enemies, and which has not only survived but thrived as a beacon of freedom, tolerance, and innovation. In a region consumed by chaos and oppression, Israel continues to be a light of inspiration. As Jews around the world sing “Maoz Tzur,” we remember that our nation, too, was conceived in faith in our “mighty stronghold.” Let us cherish the values and warm bonds of friendship that unite us in this season.

– Sarah Palin

    On behalf of my family, from the bottom of my heart, thank you Governor for your most heartfelt wishes.

    This is what someone does who takes oneself seriously, and not as just a private citizen.   How many private citizens, not to mention even the candidates, think of extending such public expressions of support for Israel?  That is the beauty of what she is doing.  She is free to express herself without charges of political posturing.

    Beautiful heartfelt sentiments.  And presidential sounding :)

    May her enemies cease their unholy behavior, so there may finally be peace in the Holy Land.

    Is this old recycled news or is Sarah on tonite?

    Every subject she touches on has it’s own kind of magic.  Beautiful music to your ears.  You feel her heartfelt appreciation and sincerity in every word she uses.  Be it thanking our brave men and women, our downtrodden, our friends and allies and us the American people.  God bless Sarah Palin and her family all year round but especially this Christmas when so much has to be forming inside that pretty little head.  We are waiting for you Governor.

      It sounds like beautiful music because she actually believes what she is saying. She is true to the bone, unlike the sorry bunch we have to pick from at this point.

    What a wonderful statement!  Adding in the history of this very special celebration for those unaware of the meaning of the holiday, plus the heartfelt warmth of her words, and Israel and all of our Jewish friends here and abroad know they have a true friend in Sarah Palin. I’d like to add my best wishes to my Jewish friends and a Very Happy Hanukkah!  God Bless You!

    Happy Hanukkah to my own nice Jewish boy, my husband.  We’ll be lighting the candles tomorrow night.  I’ll be honoring my late mother-in-law, making homemade latkes for our meal.

    And then on Christmas I’ll honor my late mother and make her flan.  It’s the best.

    Lots of celebration in our home this month.

    Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas to all of you.  You’re a great crowd to virtually hang with.
