Chanukah Celebrated Early at Victoria’s Parliament

Chanukah celebrations started early at Victoria’s Parliament House on Monday when Premier Daniel Andrews lit the Menorah.

Andrews, who lit the Menorah with Rabbi Chaim Herzog of Chabad of Melbourne CBD looking on, praised the community for its “focus on family, hard work, philanthropy, always fighting for fairness, for never settling for anybody being treated badly in our city and our state.”

Shadow Minister for Multicultural Affairs Inga Peulich said that Chanukah was a perfect time to continue fighting for what was right, both within the Australian community and beyond.

“Let us share the inspiration of Chanukah, let light lead the way to goodness, let’s reaffirm our commitment to all that is good and pledge to fill homes, our community, our nation with love, wisdom and courage to always stand up for what is right and what is decent,” she said.

    Anyone know the reason why they are doing Chanukah early this year, as opposed to during Chanukah ? Does this mean there won’t be the regular Chanukah party scheduled during Chanukah ?
