A 90-year-old menorah that survived superstorm Sandy in Long Beach is heading to the White House for its annual Hanukkah party hosted by President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama.
Temple Israel was devastated in the storm, but two 7-foot-tall brass menorahs survived, said Rabbi David Bauman. The White House has asked him to bring one for the party this Thursday at 5 p.m., he said.
