Schwarzenegger: Half-Ton Menorah a “Beacon of Light”

December 21, 2008 2:15 PM
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger joined Chabad-Lubavitch of California and local Jewish community leaders to inaugurate a 13-foot menorah at the foot of the capitol. In a Dec. 18 speech making note of the need to spread light throughout the world, the governor dedicated the menorah to the victims of the recent terror attacks in Mumbai, India. During the Thursday ceremony – the 15th such event to take place in Sacramento in as many years – Rabbi Boruch Shlomo Cunin, director of the West Coast headquarters of Chabad-Lubavitch, and Rabbi Menachem M. Cohen of Chabad of Sacramento presented the governor with a silver charity box.
