Happy Hanukah

Thanks to oneinfocus.org for this fab pic of a menorah at times square

Chanukah commemorates a spiritual battle.
The Greeks fought to make Judaism a culture and void of G-dliness.
Lighting the menorah is our battle emblem – the victory of light over darkness.oneinfocus.org

The soul of man is compared to a flame and Chanukah teaches us the powerful effects of the soul – Through a mitzvah you connect to your soul. In turn your soul illuminates the darkness and                                                      inspires others in the ways of Torah and mitzvahs.Michael Ogince

Lighting the Hanukkah Menorah is one of the most important parts of celebrating the Jewish festival of Hanukah. This ritual has been observed since the destruction of the Temple in commemoration of the miracle of the Hanukkah lights.
The Hanukkah menorah is usually lit after nightfall, when stars appear in the sky. Originally the menorah was then placed outside a home to the left of the doorpost. But today the lit menorah is more commonly placed in or near a window. Both options are fine since the most important thing is that passersby are able to see the lit menorah and be reminded of the Hanukkah miracle. In the dark days of winter and times of trouble, warm light is always a little bit of beauty, isn’t it? Wishing you all the light of the season!

Happy Hanukah to You and Your’s.
