Chanukah: We Perpetuate the Light

16 0 1

Chanuka is a moving and magnificent holiday, both physically and symbolically. Eight days of growing light, and of proudly and clearly celebrating our identities!

We take a walk on our street after lighting the first candle, passing by the houses of friends who made aliyah from Germany, North America, Scotland, the Soviet Union, France, Tunisia. Their Chanukiot glow, “lehodot u’lehallel” – to give thanks and praise for the miracle of living free Jewish lives in their own land, with their children and grandchildren.

To punctuate this miracle, our granddaughter was born just before Chanukah........
