Paris police tell Chabad not to light Hanukkah candles in public spaces

Miri Michaeli, Europe correspondent for Israel’s Channel 10 news, tweets a troubling report from Paris.

The tweet reads, in Hebrew: “Chabad: Paris police order [us] to cancel most of our public [Hanukkah] candlelighting in the city, in light of the terror attack and the fear of additional attacks. Efforts [are underway] to approve a candlelighting at the foot of the Eiffel [Tower].”

Update: Michaeli later updated her claim, saying the lighting has been given an okay to go ahead as planned.
