President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama watched as Molly Retik lights a Menorah on the second night of Hanukkah during a Hanukkah reception in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC, December 2, 2010. The Menorah, loaned from Congregation Beth Israel in New Orleans, was discovered after Hurricane Katrina by cleanup crews covered in mold, filth and sewage.
