The votes have been cast and the message has been delivered. Change is what the American public wants. We have elected a new president who has a mandate to alter the way our nation is perceived in this world. Thomas Friedman put out the call in his syndicated newspaper column: Let reconstruction begin. Jews know intimately what this means. Each Hanukkah, we remember the struggle that ensued when a grassroots effort evolved into a national movement. The Temple in Jerusalem and the menorah became symbols to those who were willing to fight to restore the religious rights and cultural legacy of the Israelite nation. As a community, we are committed to the ideal that all people are created in the image of God. It is a fundamental building block of Jewish life in America and abroad. In this manner, Jews have been at the forefront of reconstructing our great nation in the image of our religious heritage, by protecting the rights of all citizens to live in dignity and with justice.
