The infinite light of the Menorah inspires peace and brings hope to the world. Recently the King of Bahrain, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, hosted a Hanukkah celebration and menorah lighting at the Royal Palace of Bahrain.

Please also see another video below which shows a group of Jews from New York visiting the Kingdom of Bahrain and celebrating Hanukkah with a group of prominent Bahraini leaders.

In 2015, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa hosted the first Hanukkah celebration and menorah lighting in the Royal Palace since 1948.

It is so beautiful to see such gracious hospitality and fellowship on this holiday of light and hope. May this gathering serve as a step forward in bringing peace to the whole world.
