San Diego-Based Crew Celebrates Hanukkah at Sea

Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Dominique Pineiro / U.S. Navy

The Jewish holiday of Hanukkah began last night. As Adam Sandler so famously explained:

The first night of Hanukkah is celebrated with the lighting of the Menorah. In this Navy photograph, Hospitalman Aaron Seltzer lights the Menorah as part of a Hanukkah ceremony aboard the USS New Orleans, which is part of the San Diego-based Makin Island Amphibious Ready Group. Seltzer is assigned to the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit based at Camp Pendleton.
