A giant hanukkiah was transferred from the Netherlands to Sderot by the Jewish Agency, and inaugurated at a festive event in the presence of Jewish Agency Chairman Isaac Herzog and Sderot Mayor Alon Davidi.The 12-meter high hanukkiah is the largest in Israel. It was donated by the Dutch organization Christians for Israel (CVI), as an expression of solidarity with Gaza border residents in light of recent rocket attacks. The hanukkiah was built seven years ago and has passed through cities across the Netherlands, serving as a symbol of Israeli support. CVI is also committed to supporting Jewish Agency programs for Gaza border residents through Keren Hayesod-United Israel Appeal.Herzog said that, “this huge hanukkiah, which made its way to Sderot all the way from the Netherlands, is a symbol of the tremendous support Gaza border residents also receive from friends of Israel across the globe. The solidarity that members of Christians for Israel wanted to express to Sderot and the surrounding communities is heartwarming. Let’s all hope the light of candles brings resilience and quiet to all who live here. The Jewish Agency will continue to support Gaza border residents, together with our partners at the Jewish Federations of North America and Keren Hayesod.”The event was attended by a large delegation from the Netherlands, including Dutch Chief Rabbi Binyomin Jacobs and CVI chairman Mr. Pim van der Hoff.
