Jewish leaders and Poland's first lady lit candles of a large menorah in central Warsaw on Sunday as they celebrated the third day of Hanukka. The country's Chief Rabbi, Michael Schudrich, chanted prayers before Maria Kaczynski, the wife of President Lech Kaczynski, lit a candle and wished happy Hanukka to the hundreds who gathered on Grzybowski Square, which lies in the heart of the capital's once-thriving prewar Jewish community. Israeli Ambassador David Peleg and Warsaw Mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz also lit candles and recalled the rich historical ties that link Poles and Jews.
