American Jewish Committee annual event Consular Corps Chanukah Party celebrates 8th night
Lead by the Dean of the Consular Corps, Peru’s Consul General Rodolfo Enrique Coronado Molina, consuls representing countries from Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa individually lit candles to celebrate the 8th night of Chanukah at AJC’s Consular Corps Chanukah Party on Sunday evening.
The 16 consuls had safganiyot, latkes and other food to celebrate the evening that featured music by Congregation Emanu El’s Cantor Rollin Simmons. Countries attending included: Angola, Austria, Barbados, Spain, Greece, Japan, Poland, Italy, Peru, Germany, Croatia, Hungary, Bangladesh, Colombia, Sweden, Switzerland, and the State Department’s Office of Foreign Missions. It was also an opportunity for the consuls and AJC board members to interact in a social setting.
Throughout the year, AJC engages in diplomatic advocacy with individual members of the consular corps.
