Hanukkah Memo


	MEMO: 

	TO: His Holiness
	From: Office of Relations with the Jewish Community

	SUBJECT: Channukah

	We have received a request from the Jewish Community and the Israeli
	Embassy that we light a Channukah candle on the first night of Channukah.
	Sounds like a good idea - we could get CNN to cover. Itís near Christmas
	and we could find spare candles. What do you think?

	A great idea. I remember those Jewish potato pancakes that the Children of
	Abraham used to prepare in Poland when I was a kid. Make sure that thatís
	part of the deal. What about the candelabra? I know they use a special one
	- I think we may have one. Ask Maintenance to look in the cellars. If they
	donít know what youíre talking about - tell them it looks exactly like the
	one on the Arch of Titus down the street.

	SUBJECT: Candelabra
	
	We looked in the cellars. We have a big one - very, very dusty - behind a
	whole pile of incense pans, marked "Gifts from Aeolia Capitolina State
	visit 70AD". How many lights do you need? There are seven branches to this
	candelabra. We also found an ancient set of jars of oil with an OU marking
	in Greek, but one was missing - must have been dropped somewhere.

	Got your Memo. The one we have wonít do -- we need the newer model with
	eight candles. I think Chabad dropped one off at the gate last week with
	the Swiss guards. If not, ask the ADL if we can borrow one. Shut up about
	what we have in the cellar. Remember to check on the potato pancakes.
