US President Barack Obama delivered holiday greetings to the Jews of America and Israel on the first night of Hannuka, which began Sunday night. In his well wishes, Obama reflected on the spirit of Hannuka, and its connection to both the Jewish and the American people.

"At its heart, Hanukkah is about the struggle for justice in the face of overwhelming obstacles. It's a chance to reflect on the triumph of liberty over tyranny, the rejection of persecution, and on the miracles that can happen even in our darkest hours. It renews our commitment as Americans - as people who live by faith and conscience - to lead the way and act as unyielding advocates for the fundamental dignity of every human being."

"May the lights of the menorah brighten your home and warm your heart, and from my family to yours, Chag Sameach."
