On Saturday 8th December, Tom Wilson attended the community menorah lighting in Victoria Park. It was a very wet and windy evening and so the ceremony was quite short! Rabbi Mark Solomon led the prayers and Councillor Ros Grant, current civic mayor of Leicester, spoke briefly, encouraging us all to celebrate the diverse faith communities of Leicester. Rabbi Mark reminded us that Chanukah is a festival of light, in which tyranny and oppression are challenged, and we remember the miracles that God works; that light over comes darkness.
