It’s with great joy that many on our staff have been able to participate in and be recipients of even more pictures and videos of the many festive outdoor Chanukah events this year, in virtually every community we represent. We hope that all celebrations will continue with great joy, safety and security throughout the weekend.
The peace and protection we feel the rest of the year from our Shabbat candles is certainly present during these Chanukah days. Despite all the worries around us, we are enjoying taking advantage of the wonderful time for Jewish families and friends to light up the darkness of their homes, neighborhoods, communities and the world, from Teaneck to Highland Park, from Elizabeth to New Rochelle, to Boca Raton and even Jerusalem.
It is a show of spiritual strength for our children that even during times of strife, the resilient Jewish people’s role in the world is to bring light to the darkness.
Chanukah Sameach to all!
