Posted on December 15, 2008 In Blog

This evening, President Bush will welcome the grandsons of President Harry S. Truman and Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion to participate in the annual Menorah Lighting ceremony, which is held immediately prior to the White House Hannukah Reception. The Menorah that will be lit was a gift from Prime Minister Ben Gurion to President Truman in May of 1951 and is on loan for the evening from the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library in Independence, Missouri.

The ceremony will be at 5:30 PM EST and will be carried live via webcast on the home page of the White House web site,
