(Washington, D.C.) The White House will host a 90-year-old menorah that was battered but survived Hurricane Sandy.

President Obama is hosting a Hanukkah party tonight.

The menorah, made of brass, survived a 10-foot storm surge that destroyed a chapel, a library, numerous religious books and six Torah scrolls at Temple Israel in Long Beach.

The White House learned about the Menorah by a Jewish organization which helped communities in New York City and on Long Island after the storm.
