On behalf of the clergy and people of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, I take this occasion to extend to the local Jewish community our prayerful best wishes as you observe Chanukah.
As you gather to celebrate the ultimate triumph of G-d over oppression, may you be blessed with peace and joy. It is my sincerest prayer that this Chanukah will be particularly strengthening for your community’s families.
+Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap.
Archbishop of Philadelphia
