5752-1991 "Chanukah Live" Celebrations

1st Night of Chanukah, 5752 · December 1, 1991
An address at the Chanukah Live worldwide satellite hookup at 770: "Everything G-d created, He created for His glory." The ultimate purpose of science is to discover new ways to facilitate and increase our ability to serve G-d. This we see clearly here at this gathering: Jews in every corner of the globe were able to tune in, via satellite, and to watch as one little child kindled the Chanukah flames. Thus we see an illustration of the fact that one Mitzvah instantly brings light to the entire world.
