For the past three years, the President has participated in a Menorah lighting before the annual White House Hanukkah Reception. At right, Menachem Felzenberg lights the Chanukah Menorah as his siblings, Chaim, and Miriam look on, three of the six Felzenberg children.  At left are United States President George W. Bush and first lady Laura Bush with the rest of the Felzenberg family.  Their father, Captain Shmuel Felzenberg, is serving in Iraq as the senior Jewish chaplain with the United States Army's 84th Engineer Battalion, from Schofield Barracks, Hawaii. Captain Felzenberg is scheduled to return home in January.  The four-foot-tall sterling silver Menorah is on loan from the Boca Raton Synagogue in Boca Raton, Florida. The Menorah was made in Israel and purchased for the synagogue by two congregants, Nachman and Jamie Feig. Because tonight is the third night of Chanukah, the lighters will light three candles and the shamash, the main candle. <br />
