Tonight was the fourth night of Chanukah and the official lighting of Brooklyn’s largest menorah. Borough President Marty Markowitz was on hand as was Mehmet Şimşek, the council general of the Republic of Turkey. Markowitz said that Israel’s relationship with Turkey was a sign of the possibility of peace in the Middle East. More photos after the jump.
