Menorahs Around Boise

December 7-15, 2023

"It's been a pretty dark time for the Jewish people since October 7th. There are places all throughout the United States where Hanukkah decorations are essentially being canceled. ... The reason for this is because people are worried it might invoke some antisemitic rhetoric or crime."

It [Chanukah] tells me that even though times are pretty dark for the Jewish people, there is light, and that's why we want to bring light to all of Boise and put up menorahs all over town. "There are Jews here and folks who are allies and celebrating with us."

"It's always hard to be next to a Christmas tree because it's [the tree] such a beautiful symbol of the holiday. We don't want to eclipse that.


We want to make sure that Jews in the community feel comfortable knowing that they can celebrate their holiday with pride."
