Twilight: 10 Kislev, 5741 · November 18, 1980

Now that we stand two weeks before Chanukah, it is time to raise some points as to the nature of the Chanukah campaign: The Chanukah Menorah is kindled at twilight. “Twilight” represents a dual state: on the one hand, there is darkness; but at the same time, the sun is still fully there, albeit obstructed.

Event Date: 10 Kislev 5741 - November 18, 1980

Now that we stand two weeks before Chanukah, it is time to raise some points as to the nature of the Chanukah campaign:

The Chanukah Menorah is kindled at twilight. “Twilight” represents a dual state: on the one hand, there is darkness; but at the same time, the sun is still fully there, albeit obstructed.

The Chanukah campaign must reach those Jews who are in a state of spiritual twilight. Like the sun at twilight, G-d’s Divine light may not be readily visible upon them, but in truth, it is fully present, for just like the sun always shines, the Jew’s heart remains ever-awake to G-d, Torah and Mitzvos.

The same is true for Jews living in their “twilight years.” Their health and physical condition is no longer robust; many are forced into nursing facilities, leaving behind active, vigorous lives. And certainly for Jews who are in prison… For them, the Chanukah campaign is needed even more.
