At the annual White House Chanukah party, Trump retold the story of Chanukah and the miracle of oil in the Holy Temple – “a sign of God’s presence in his dwelling place and a symbol of the faith and resilience of the Jewish people.”
President Donald Trump, addressing the annual White House Chanukah party, repeated his commitment to recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish people. Demonstrating the ancient Jewish ties to Jerusalem and the Holy Temple, he told the story of Chanukah, including the miracle of the oil – “a sign of God’s presence in his dwelling place and a symbol of the faith and resilience of the Jewish people.”
“We are proud to stand with the People of Israel and to renew our enduring bond,” he said, in apparent reference to the tensions between Israel and the Obama administration.
