Perhaps our Chanukkah this year was not as “eventful” as I would have liked.
And I won’t dwell on that. 😉
But one thing we DID do this year
was attend a local community menorah (channukiah) lighting!
There was music and laughter… smiles and joy.
Doughnut decorating and latke eating.
A telling of the story of Chanukkah and encouragement.
The singing of blessings and lighting of the menorah.
It was such a joy to gather with
the local Jewish community to celebrate the festival!
It was just a glimpse of future days that will come
when our Creator’s people will dwell in unity and rejoice!
May it be in our day!
