The December Holidays hold many secular and sacred celebrations that we all enjoy. And the Jewish ritual of Hanukkah celebrates a miracle, born in strife, of the menorah lamp oil lasting 8 days—until more sacred kosher oil could be prepared.
“We kindle these lights for the miracles and the wonders, for the redemption and the battles that you made for our forefathers, in those days at this season, through your holy priests. During all eight days of Hanukkah these lights are sacred, and we are not permitted to make ordinary use of them except for to look at them in order to express thanks and praise to Your great Name for Your miracles, Your wonders and Your salvations.”
As we begin this Holy Season of Light, may the spirit of Hanukkah be with you as you enjoy the music video below:
