Also, When we understand The Miracle of Hanukkah, We see the valor of Judah Maccabee and his armies. We see how the oil that was to last 24hrs lasted several days. In Parshah Studies, Torah "Faith" readings we learn that even a little light in this world can make a difference removing darkness from this world. In life, when circumstances are pre-determined or pre-destined for good things we are to truly grasp that understanding. Like "The Miracle of Hanukkah" It's important to understand that with "mitzvah's" and good deeds we all do our part to make this world a more safer, fair and just place. The "Festival of Lights" and "The Miracle of Hanukkah" show us that like the candles lit on The Menorah, even a little light can make a difference bringing light to this world. May it be a Joyous Celebration with The Miracle of Hanukkah. Reply

Excellent. We enjoy a lot the small videos. But "we" or specifically I, am not English native speaker, I understand pretty well, but there are too many names, places, characters I am not familiar with and you speak way too fast. Could be in a more relaxed, natural way, not soooo fast. Because, all names, places, whatever pass so fast I can´t "figure out" in my mind at the same pace. Just that! Thanks a lot. Reply
