To the haters over at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport:
Say NO to Menorahs
“..a decision by airport officials to remove its nine Christmas trees instead of adding a giant Jewish menorah to the holiday display as a rabbi had requested…
After consulting with lawyers, port staff believed that adding the menorah would have required adding symbols for other religions and cultures in the Northwest. The holidays are the busiest season at the airport, Betancourt said, and staff didn’t have time to play cultural anthropologists.”
Didn’t have enough time?
Rabbi Elazar Bogomilsky gently put in the “request” over a month ago.
And erm…what other “religions and cultures” are they referring to exactly?
It’s clearly a case of Menorah Allergy Syndrome, Seattle.
Well, cheer up..here’s a peek at but a few places that Chabad has lit Menorahs..and to date….they’re all still in existence.
Try it Seattle. You may jus like it.
