Prime Minister's greetings to all the Jewish people in Lithuania and around the world on the start of Hanukkah


2023 12 07


My sincere greetings to all Jews in Lithuania and around the world on the Feast of Hanukkah!

Hanukkah tells the story of the strength of the human spirit. It reminds us how even the most fragile flame can dispel darkness, defeat evil and light the way forward. 

This celebration is dedicated to expressing gratitude for the miracles in our lives - big and small, visible and invisible - from ancient times to the present day.

It reminds us that nothing is impossible. This is especially important at a time when there is so much hatred, cruelty and growing anti-Semitism in the world. I truly believe that the miracle of Hanukkah, faith and wisdom will help us to overcome all obstacles.

May the light of Hanukkah candles bring peace and tranquillity to your homes and hearts! Happy Hanukkah!

Hag Chanukah Sameach!
