Chana's story Thank you so much...Yes, absolutely the story of the Jewish People. I watched it after an extremely stressful 3 days, which culminated about 4 hours ago, leaving me wondering what was going on, what was I meant to learn? & was it possible to be a different me, more cold hearted as people were telling me to do & be. In the Shule I go to Let no one be hungry has a very big meaning. What I know is one can hunger for more than just food, friendship and love and acceptance, are needs as well. & I am happy to share my blessings with them....and I was distressed about how to explain this and my need for my heart to remain open and soft. I know I am urrounded and protected by Hashem . I know, because I always bounce back, no matter how hurt I get. I watched this video, and it confirmed for me to be me. To stay true to my ideals and truths, even though I am always labelled stubborn (haha) when I do this. Thank you again for this wonderful story. It made Chanuka for me Reply

There's a song that promises, "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine..." This, to me, signifies the Light that is within each of us, the Light that nothing whatsoever can extinguish. This, to me, signifies the Eternal Covenant of G-d, established from the beginning that has no end. This, to me, signifies the miracle of the oil that we celebrate on Chanukah. Reply

Chanukah Story I was deeply moved by Chana's presentation. We have such a beautiful heritage that has never allowed its light to be extinguished yet we watch it flicker and struggle daily. I am blessed to be Jewish as are those I love. May the Chanukah season enrich Jewish souls all over the world; may the season lighten our load and lift our hearts, and may G-d bless us. Reply

I really like the In Touch audio, but this one especially has touched me. Thank you for reaffirming what it means to be Jewish in a secular world. Reply
