Boca Raton to Host Hanukkah FDOI
The U.S. Postal Service will host a First-Day-Of-Issue dedication for the 2016 Hanukkah Forever Stamp at Temple Beth El, 333 SW 4 Ave, Boca Raton, Florida, at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, November 1. This will be an off-the-clock activity for employees who choose to attend this national event.
The menorah is viewed as if from inside a room, looking through a window to the outside. The candles --- one for each of the eight nights and days of Hanukkah, and the ninth, the shamash or "servant," used to light the other candles --- are a creamy white and have all been lit. The white window trim is visible through the branches of the menorah, which echo the tangle of snow-covered tree branches beyond the glass. The artist added visual interest to the scene by highlighting the contrast between the hot candle flames and the cool snow, the vertical candles and the horizontal window frame, and the dark menorah with the brightly lit candles.
