Dear reader,

It’s Chanukah once again!

Just when the nights get so long, so dark and so cold, we have these eight glorious and wondrous days of light and celebrations. As you sit by your menorah trying to absorb the special message of this holiday, please tell us what you like best about this holiday.

Below are some ideas. Tell us which of these you like best about Chanukah—and write to us your own thoughts about what Chanukah means to you, in the comment section below.

What do you like best about Chanukah…?

  • The presents or gifts of money.
  • The special family gatherings.
  • The bright light of the candles shining against the darkness.
  • Being offered doughnuts wherever you go.
  • Savory oily latkes.
  • Playing dreidel.
  • Chanukah’s message of a moral victory of right and light over darkness.

Also, please send us a picture of your special lit menorah and we’ll post some of the pictures that best capture the light of this joyous holiday on our TheJewishWoman Facebook page. Please make sure to friend us and like us to spread the message of light to others.

Wishing you a very happy Chanukah!
