Non-Jews asked to light a chanukiah in support of Jewish community

Campaign Against Antisemitism has created a print-at-home chanukiah


The Campaign Against Antisemitism has asked non-Jews to print out A4 posters of chanukiahs and place them in their window to show solidarity with the Jewish community during this time of heightened tensions.

Some members of the Jewish community have shared concerns about lighting menorahs in their windows this year, while others think it is more important than ever. The printouts are an easy way for non-Jews to “let people know that you stand with your Jewish friends and neighbours against antisemitism”, said a CAA spokesperson.

In a tweet, the CAA said: “This Chanukah, with antisemitic crime surging, we have created an image of a Chanukah lamp, which you can print and place in your window in solidarity with British Jews ahead of the eight-day festival, which begins this Thursday evening.”

Like the rainbows for the NHS during the pandemic or the Ukrainian flags that many pinned up when Russia invaded, these chanukiah printouts can be coloured in by children and put in a front window.
