      Wednesday Candle Lighting at E1

      The Mevasseret Adumim settlement group will light Hanukkah candles on E1, the area between Maaleh Adumim and Jerusalem on Wednesday night.

      Daniella Weiss, of the Nachalah settlement company told A7, "We are convinced that our steadfast demand that Prime Minister Netanyahu fulfill his promise to build on E1 will overcome any international pressure to decline. We can expand Maaleh Adumim from 40,000 residents to 100,000. Hanukkah is our celebration of the victory of few despite being outnumbered by many."
