Minnesota legislators to attend White House Hanukkah event

State Sen. Terri Bonoff, DFL-Minnetonka, and Sen. Dick Cohen, DFL-St. Paul, will be at the White House tomorrow for a Hanukkah celebration hosted by President Obama.

The two legislators are among 500 people invited to the event, which is the ninth Hanukkah celebration held at the White House.

“It’s an unprecedented honor for us to be invited to visit the President and First Lady for this gathering, as we celebrate this special time of year not only for the Jewish community but for all people of faith in our nation,” Bonoff said in a news release.
