With Chanukah quickly receding into the past, it’s
easy to feel a little down. Somehow, no matter how carefully we plan and how
many “perfect” pictures we take, time marches ruthlessly on.
But yesterday’s menorah lighting is not gone. Every
mitzvah done brings a bit more light into the world, and that keeps on
aggregating—just like the Chanukah flames—until there is enough light in the
world to finally tip the scales for good.
