U.S. Senator Ted Cruz issues statement commemorating the start of Hanukkah

WASHINGTON, DC — “On this Hanukkah, I wish our Jewish friends a happy holiday,” said Cruz. “The miracle of the oil reminds us of God’s provision in times of trouble. The little vessel that kept burning for eight days embodies the hope of a courageous people. Their piety and perseverance through adversity is an inspiration to many. Their steadfastness speaks to their faith in a greater future.Last week, I had the honor of attending an event celebrating Emma Lazarus, the poet who wrote the words that welcome all to this land of liberty: ‘Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!’ We are grateful for the rich history.”
