Stephen Timms has joined Labour Party leader, Ed Miliband, in wishing the whole Jewish community a happy Chanukah.
Stephen said "I wish the whole Jewish community a happy Chanukah! I hope it is a special festival spent with family and friends. It is a time that reminds us all of the values of Judaism so important to society and to politics - those of family, justice, commitment and compassion. May it remind us all of the importance of standing strong in the fight against oppression and spur us on to bring light and hope in challenging situations."
