Airports in Hawaii for the first time included menorahs in their holiday displays. Rabbi Itchel Krasnjansky, director of Chabad of Hawaii, told The Associated Press that he had approached the airports in light of a recent incident in Seattle, where the international airport removed Christmas trees in response to a demand by a Chabad rabbi that a menorah be added to the holiday display. The trees were restored last week.
