US President Barack Obama released a Hanukka message to Jewish communities around the world Tuesday.

"This Hanukka season we remember the powerful story of a band of believers who rose up and freed their people, only to discover that the oil left in their desecrated temple - which should have been enough for only one night - ended up lasting for eight," the US president wrote.

"It's a timeless story of right over might and faith over doubt - one that has given hope to Jewish people everywhere for over 2,000 years," the message said.
