The Embassy of the Republic of Guatemala in the United States — in partnership with the Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) — will host later this month the first-ever Central America Forum Hanukkah Celebration.

The festive gathering will be held at the Washington, D.C. residence of Guatemalan Ambassador to the U.S. H.E. Alfonso Quiñónez, on Monday, November 29th, 2021, at 6 PM EST, the second night of Hanukkah.

This special event follows the inaugural Central America Forum for Israel that brought together top leaders from the region earlier this year for a united stand against antisemitism and resolute display of solidarity with the Jewish state.

The Hanukkah celebration — including a menorah-lighting ceremony — will coincide with the 74th anniversary of the adoption, with crucial support from several Central American countries, of the United Nations Partition Plan that paved the way for Israel’s establishment.

After the recent launch of its Hispanic Outreach Department, CAM looks forward to expanding its ties throughout the Americas and working collaboratively with its partners there to further the mission of defeating the world’s oldest hatred.
