Have a Happy Hanukkah

Have a Happy Hanukkah

Dec 01, 2018

It is the night before Hanukkah...and I am thinking about how much this holiday has evolved over the decades of my life. From the little tin Hanukkiah and the orange candles that lit our way through the cold winter nights to the beautiful Hanukkiot of today, it seems that the holiday has changed just as has the Jewish world. What has not changed is the message of Hanukkah...of light in darkness, of strength in the face of a world that would, at times, deprive Jews of life and liberty...

And so, on this Hanukkah of 5779, our candles should shine brightly reflecting the inner spirit of the Jewish people and our eternal striving for a just and peaceful world - for us and for all.

Happy Hanukkah from our Board of Directors and Staff!
Rabbi Ted Feldman

P.S. Please join us tomorrow: Sisterhood Bake Sale beginning at 3:30 and our lighting of our outdoor Hanukkah at 5 p.m. Plus, our gift shop will be open!!
