For the second year running Mayor Jackson, of Cleveland, Ohio helped light the menorah in Public Square, next to the Moses Cleaveland Statue.

The City Photographer was there, along with Channel 23, the City Cable access channel. 

I practiced an act of civil disobedience and gave a panhandler a dollar.

With every lamp we kindle

  With each good deed we do, we shed more light upon the world--and the darkness passes.  Obviously, a message that transcends nationality and that should resonate with the diversity that is Cleveland, as Mayor Jackson described in his blessing.
