First Signs of Chanukah Emerge in Australia

| |

The traditional lighting of the Menorah took place in the NSW State Parliament in Sydney last night. Although the latkes have yet to make their appearance, politicians and State identities were offered platefuls of doughnuts as they entered the function room in Parliament House.

Messages to the community were delivered by Don Harwin the president of the Legislative Council and Speaker Shelley Hancock before Premier Barry O’Farrell, donning a red yarmulke took to the podium.

He reinforced the relationship between the State Government and the Jewish community highlighting the contribution the community had made to Australian society .

Greetings came, too, from John Robertson the Leader of the Opposition.
