Some headlines and summaries from JTA

U.S. national menorah lit

The U.S. homeland security secretary helped light the National Menorah in Washington.

Michael Chertoff, who is Jewish, took part in Sunday’s ceremony. Chaya Schreiber, a 12-year-old girl from New Orleans whose home and school were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, addressed the crowd of several hundred people who attended the ceremonial lighting, The Associated Press reported.

Kibbutz members suspected in drug ring

A kibbutz in northern Israel allegedly served as a center for a drug-smuggling ring.

Family members on Kibbutz Gesher Haziv, which was settled after Israel’s War of Independence with immigrants from North America, were allegedly part of a ring that smuggled cocaine from Argentina into Israel.

Liquid cocaine was smuggled into Israel in wine bottles, police believe, earning the smugglers hundreds of thousands of dollars.
