The lighting of the menorah at the White House took place yesterday:
When we light this menorah in the White House, when Jewish families place menorahs in their windows, we are proclaiming liberty and showing that there is still light. That little bit of light, wherever it is found, can dispel the darkness and illuminate a path forward. pic.twitter.com/cHtGAJbIfT

The president who is âguided by the light alwaysâ is also guided by his campaign slogan even more. Obviously President Biden was advised to stay on message because this is part of what he had to say:
Biden, on message at the Hannukah menorah lighting: âA little bit of light, wherever it is found, can dispel the darkness and illuminate the path forward âŚ we can not only build back better, but build back brighter.â

So the real meaning of Hanukkah is a political slogan.

Worked in his goofy slogan in a menorah lighting ceremony.
