WASHINGTON (AP) - District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray will help light a menorah at the city's government building in celebration of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.

The mayor is participating in the menorah lighting Tuesday afternoon at the John A. Wilson Building. Tuesday evening marks the fourth night of the eight-night holiday.

On Sunday, Jeffrey Zients, the acting head of the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, helped light a menorah on the Ellipse near the White House.
