MTI-Hungary Today 2021.11.29.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has greeted the Hungarian Jewish community on the occasion of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, his press chief said on Sunday.

“This time around as we witness short days and long nights we increasingly long for the light, traditional delicacies and merry days spent in a family circle,” Bertalan Havasi quoted Orbán as saying in a letter addressed to the community.

“This year, as the holiday approaches among waves of a pandemic and migration, the light of the Hanukkah candles promoting hope and the reality of miracles shine ever more beautifully,” he added, greeting every member of the Hungarian Jewish community.
