Menorah lighting at City Hall
New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine and other “dignitaries” will be on hand at the annual Menorah lighting at City Hall – tonight at 5pm, with other activities beginning at 3pm.
“Distribution of hot latkes, doughnuts, chocolate Chanukah ‘gelt’, Menorah kits and more. Childrens Program begins at 3 pm INSIDE City Hall with Arts and Crafts, Color a cookie, and ‘The Miracle of Chanukah’ with the Small Wonder Puppet Theater.”
A funny comment from last year’s Menorah lighting thread on Hoboken411:
“To all my Democrat friends: Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2008, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.
To all my Republican friends:
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!”
