The menorah was out early in this lighting, which took place a couple of days before Chanucah.
Pictured (here) with Israeli Ambassador Daniel Taub is Koji Sekimuzu, secretary-general of the International Maritime Organisation. It’s a UN-linked body and Israel is bidding for election to its council.
The menorah, placed in windows, was “the Jewish lighthouse”, the ambassador explained.
