In late November, Chabad of Greater St. Louis organized a pre-Hanukkah celebration at the Governor’s Office at the State Capitol in Jefferson City. As part of the celebration, Gov. Mike Parson proclaimed “the days of November 28 – December 6 as the days of ‘Show-Me Chanukah’ in Missouri,” as has become an annual tradition.
