Crazy about Chanukah
Regarding “Sure Jonathan Jordan’s Chanukah display is impressive” (Dec. 10): What a positive, creative way to raise awareness of Chanukah. Many, many non-Jews are curious about our traditions. Thank you for running the article and photos.
Warm wishes for a healthy and joyous holiday and 2021. With gratitude and appreciation for sending me the Washington Jewish Week. I love the articles.

John Kerry the perfect choice?
Regarding “Biden’s first picks” (Editorial, Dec. 3): Your description of former secretary of state, senator and presidential candidate John Kerry’s uninspiring record of accomplishments leaves one to wonder why anyone should choose him to lead anything. The final comment summarizes neatly my view of Kerry since he first made his name as a critic of the Vietnam War after serving there: a man who looks like he is trying hard, but won’t actually get anything done.
If that means he will not be able to get America to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement, he will prove to be a perfect choice. That agreement was never really about climate control, it was about redistribution of resources, with America, as usual, providing generously.
