Hannukah Greetings from the Ibrahim Family

Dear friends,

May you and yours enjoy the blessings of Hanukkah as you light candles to fulfill the obligation enacted by the Sages. May the blessings, miracles and wonders from your household spill over to all the other households in our Nation and in the world, so that the world at large can benefit from the ancient wisdom and traditions of the Jewish people.

In the broader spirit of Hanukkah, which means “dedication”, let us all dedicate ourselves, Jew as well as Gentile, to wishing for a miracle that brings about a better world — a world where we accept and love each other and where we rejoice in each others’ celebrations, as I plan to do on Wednesday evening at the lighting of the second candle at the Embassy of Israel in Washington.

Nina and SA Ibrahim

The Ibrahim family is an American Muslim family that promotes international and interreligious understanding through the Ibrahim Family Foundation, which sponsors the Ibrahim Leadership and Dialogue Project in the Middle East, administered by the Institute of International Education, and supports the work of the Interreligious Coordinating Council in Israel. Mr. S.A. Ibrahim, the CEO of Radian Group, received ICCI’s “Building Bridges and Bonds” in June this year.
