Hindus greet Jews on Hanukkah

News Release, Sun, 21 Dec 2008 NI Wire

Hindus have sent greetings to Jewish community world over on Hanukkah (Chanukah), eight-day Festival of Lights beginning December 21.


Acclaimed Hindu and Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed, in a release in Nevada (USA) today, expressed warmest greetings on Hanukkah festival, wishing happiness, peace and joy to all the Jews.

Zed, who is the president of Universal Society of Hinduism, stressed that all religions should work together for a just and peaceful world. Dialogue would bring us mutual enrichment, he added.

Hanukkah (Hebrew word for "dedication"), with origins in second century BCE, begins on 25 Kislev and is observed by kindling of lights of Menorah. It celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, of purity over adulteration, and of spirituality over materiality. It also refers to a legend of one day's supply of the holy oil miraculously lasting eight days.

Judaism is a monotheistic religion of world's about 14 million Jews whose most sacred text is Torah. Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about one billion followers. Moksha (liberation) is the ultimate goal of Hinduism.
