Sayeeda Warsi said:
‘It gives me great pleasure as Co-Chairman of the Conservative Party to send my best wishes to everyone celebrating this very special time in the Jewish calendar.
‘I know that Jewish communities across the country will be joining together to light candles and spend time with their families to mark this occasion, the ‘festival of lights’.
‘This is a festival where we can all celebrate the triumph of hope over adversity, and in these difficult times, take inspiration from the messages of light, hope and kindness, which are such a big part of the Jewish faith. ‘Above all, Chanukah is a time for people of different faiths to come together and look to 2012 with renewed hope.
