Hannukah in Berlin

!2Last Sunday, a group of Syrian refugee children — along with other Muslim groups in — joined with Jewish groups and German citizens  for a public Hanukkah candle-lighting ceremony at the Brandenberger Gate, once the symbol of the division of Berlin into East and West.  Aiman Mazyek, head of the Central Council of Muslims in Germany, and representatives of Berlin mosques attended the ceremony along with Jewish and German leaders and foreign diplomats.

Rabbi Yehudah Teichtal, the head of Chabad in Berlin, said at the ceremony “that peace and tolerance are stronger than any dispute,. Those who spread fear have but one purpose, to destroy the unity and peace between cultures.”
