Menorah Lighting Is Welcome Respite

December 02, 1990

In response to the "Menorah Display OK is Outrageous" letter from Douglas E. Mirell of the American Jewish Congress (Westside, Nov. 18): I would like to see Mr. Mirell write a letter protesting the lighting of the National Christmas Tree or the Easter Egg Hunt at the White House. Until that happens, the credibility of Mr. Mirell and his organization on the menorah issue will remain close to zero. I invite Mr. Mirell to come this year and observe the lighting of this menorah he so objects to. He will be surprised to discover that a large portion of the attendees are, like me, totally secular Jews who find this a heartwarming event and a welcome respite from the public Christmas bombardment that we otherwise are exposed to at this time of year.
