PM Starts 3rd Night of Hanukkah with PMO Staff

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu lit the candles for the third night of Hanukkah Thursday evening at the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem, together with employees of the Prime Minister's Office.

Referring to the current uproar in some circles about separate arrangements for men and women on buses and sidewalks in certain hareidi-religious neighborhoods, Prime Minister Netanyahu said "On Hanukkah, we remember that we need to insist on what unites us and avoid what divides us. One of the things that unite the Jewish People is the principle that our public space will remain open for everyone, without discrimination, not for men and not for women, but everyone together."
