Washington, D.C.—Nevada Senator Harry Reid made the following statement on the first night of Hanukkah:
“The celebration of Hanukkah is a reminder of the hope we all have for Nevada's bright future. The story of Hanukkah is about keeping faith in the darkest of times and the story of overcoming adversity through perseverance is one that all Nevadans can be inspired by.
“As families gather together to celebrate, let us all remember our neighbors in need and what we can do to support them and make our communities stronger. Together we can build a future as bright and as enduring as the lights of the Chanukkiyah. Chag Semeach!"
