A McDonald’s Menorah
From the local paper. It couldn’t wait until Purim.
No menorah at McDonald’s
To the editor:
On Dec. 7 I took my two small grandsons to McDonald’s on West 236th Street and Broadway for lunch and to play. To my disappointment I found there was no menorah anywhere in the restaurant.
There were many Christmas decorations all over as well as a Christmas tree so why not a menorah? There are many, many Jewish people that eat there so why not celebrate our holiday as well?
They have lost me as a customer. I have written this same note to McDonald’s. Most of the stores along West 231st Street have a menorah in their window so why should this restaurant not have one?
A spokeswoman from McDonald’s contacted X to tell her a menorah would be displayed at the Broadway restaurant on Dec. 12. Hanukkah ended on Dec. 11. -editor
