“As we light our candles, I find myself wondering about what the real miracle of Chanukah might be. Perhaps it’s that the message of Chanukah still resonates two millennia later. It’s true, the story of the holiday centers on the strength of the Maccabees to fight back against their oppressors and restore the Temple in Jerusalem. But where does their perseverance come from? ‘Not by might and not by power, but through my spirit.’ The universal idea that repairing the world is accomplished by the good-hearted is a message that humankind needs more than ever.

It is not a cliché to say that we live in dark times. How amazing is the Jewish wisdom that answers our most significant challenges through annual rituals that inspire us to action and light! Our response to the darkest season of the year, or to any dark period of history, is to stand up and set our world aglow with goodness and light.” ~Avi West

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE WILL AND ABILITY OF JEWISH PEOPLE THROUGHOUT HISTORY TO COME TOGETHER AND ALWAYS, ALWAYS SUPPORT EACH OTHER AND PERSEVERE.

🕯️WE LIGHT CANDLES IN A TESTAMENT THAT FAITH MAKES MIRACLES POSSIBLE! 🕯️
