Defy ISIS: Light Your Candles!

Courageous news from the City of Lights: "Chabad of Paris has announced that it will go forward with its traditional candle-lighting ceremonies throughout the city during Hanukkah, despite heightened fears of terrorism in the wake of the November 13 terror attacks in the French capital. 'As a matter of principle, Chabad has always taken the position that shutting down its Jewish activities would be a capitulation to terror, a submission to darkness which the [Hanukkah] lights are intended to dispel,' an article published on the Chabad Lubavitch Headquarters’ news site read, explaining the movement’s decision."
