To Faina Kukliansky, chairwoman
Lithuanian Jewish Community
I sincerely congratulate you and the entire Lithuanian Jewish (Litvak) Community on the holiday of Hanukkah.
Together with you I take joy in the miracles of the Creator, which He has done for your people and is now effecting in the life of every human being.
May the light of the Hanukkah candles, enjoining us to give thanks to our Creator, fill your community to overflowing with peace and joy, and encourage all of us to spread the goodness and hope of God to all people.
