On this last day of Chanukah, we’d like to share with you a truly joyous moment.

Last week, on the third night of Chanukah, Israeli President, Isaac Herzog joined us in Jerusalem for a special Menorah lighting with ELEM youth, staff, and volunteers. He heard stories from young people whose lives have been changed for the better by ELEM.

The youth also sang Miri Mesika’s song “This Day.”

“Each one of you can make your dreams come true,” Herzog said. “We’re seeing people every day who start at the bottom and climb to places of influence and leadership. What you’re doing is incredible and I know I’ll be hearing about you all. You’re very inspiring.”

Happy Chanukah everyone!
