Chanukah in Saddam's Palace

Lt. Laurie Zimmet, serving for the US Navy Intelligence in Baghdad, Iraq, organized a Chanukah Festival and Menorah Kindling inside the Al Faw Palace, the former palace of Saddam Hussein in Baghdad. Zimmet is a member of Chabad of the Conejo. In a facility built by an evil man of an evil regime, the light of Chanukah shined bright. "A victory for the light of goodness over darkness", said Rabbi Moshe Bryski, Laurie's Rabbi.
"We are all so proud of her."
