THE QUEST FOR ANNUAL HANUKKAH STAMPS
1996 - 2003 2004-2008 2009-10 2011-2012
This site is devoted to my campaign to get the United States Postal Service to issue a new and different Hanukkah stamp every year it issues a new stamp for Christmas. BACKGROUND will give you a little history of my fight for the Hanukkah stamp. CONSIDER THIS some facts to ponder. Is it bias and/or discrimination? FUTURE STAMPS gives you information the USPS has given me with regard to new Hanukkah stamps in the future. It also gives you the Postmaster General's address if you wish to write him and tell him you want a new Hanukkah stamp every year.
I have added a new page concerning Jewish American Heritage Month. For information on this subject and Jewish Heritage stamps click on HERITAGE.
I hope that you will pass this website address on to your relatives, and friends. Even though there has been a Hanukkah stamp "available" every year since 1996, there has been only 4 new designs (The second eight 8 years later in 2004, the third in 2009 and the fourth in 2011) Even though there has been a Hanukkah stamp for 16 years, I still meet people who do not know there is a U.S. Hanukkah stamp.
This site will also keep you informed about the availability of the Hanukkah stamp each year, be it a new design or a previous year's re-issued or revalued version. For more up-to-date information on the present year's stamp click on THIS YEAR.
If you have any comments regarding a new (and different) Hanukkah stamp every year please tell me. Click on "CONTACT ME" for my contact info.
