On a ski vacation in Canada, our son asked if he could light our Menorah on the lodge's mantel.When we lit, another Jewish family came over to light with us. Several non-Jews commented how nice it was.

Similar situation...

An elderly Rabbi and his wife were living in a condo where they put up a sukkah at the appropriate time. the condo association told them to take it down, and when they refused, the association imposed a fine. Neither the Rabbi nor the association would budge, and after several years of the sukkah being put up and the couple fined, the matter was finally settled in court where the couple's right to a sukkah was upheld and the association required to pay the couple a significant sum plus court costs. The following succos sukkahs were put up on many decks. As the title says, "Just Jew it."
