Dear Friend,

Great emphasis is placed on including kids in the Chanukah festivities. They receive Chanukah gelt and are encouraged to light their own menorahs, and community Chanukah events are often geared to families with children. What is often overlooked is that Chanukah is for everyone, including people without young children at home.

You don’t need to be a kid to observe Chanukah and all it entails: lighting the menorah and sharing the holiday with others. If you know someone who is homebound or hospitalized, why not make the best of the remaining days of Chanukah, and visit them and bring some light into their lives?

Every Jew deserves to celebrate Chanukah, even those with no one to celebrate with. You can be the one to make a difference in someone’s life today.

Happy Chanukah!

Eliezer Zalmanov,
