Our Friends From Des Moines at the White House Chanukah Party!

Our friends, Ari and Chana ZC Sytner, who we know from our time in the Community Kollel of Des Moines, are the rabbi and Rebbetzin of the main Shul in Charleston, South Carolina, the city of my birth! They were invited to the White House Chanukah Party with President Bush. Here's a video Ari made of the experience. Enjoy!

By the way, below is another video from that event. This one is of the Kol Zimra group singing several Chanukah songs accapella with the President sitting in the front row.

Just a clarification. The Sytner's are the rabbi and Rebbetzin of the Orthodox Shul, BSBI, which includes the main branch - downtown, the minyan house - west of the ashley, and any other minyan the community needs.

Thanks for the clarification. Didn't I say that though by linking to that Shul's website? At any rate, I did not use the name of the Shul. At any rate, yay Sytners!

How the Bush adminstration can hold these events and also lean on Israel to do things to damage its own security shows the human ability to compartmentalize. One Condi Rice meddling in the Middle East undoes many White House Chanukah fests.
