I think a lot of us had a tough year so I thought I'd send out some encouragement based on my understanding of why Hannukah is important. The miracle of the rededication of the Temple reminds us that even when our senses and human understanding tells us we don't have enough, HaShem knows our needs and can supply what we lack. He is in fact all we need.
When we don't have enough money to pay the bills that are piling up, when we lack the patience with our kids, when we feel like we don't have the strength to face the challenges that loom in the days ahead, think of Hannukah, think of the lights that represent hope. Happy Hannukah friends, may HaShem bless you and keep you, may His Face shine upon you!
