Old Man with Torah 1999; Hyman Bloom
Hanukkah o Hanukkah, come light the Menorah.. lets have a party, we'll all dance the hora??.. while fried foods, candle lighting, and dreidels are all genuine markers of the holy celebration of Hanukkah, i want to re-mind us all that this Festival of Lights is also about rededication. and rededication is good. when one candle burned for eight long days on such a small reserve of olive oil, was it not like our own inner fire; the eternal lamp that kept our temple illumined; the flames of dedication? i devote this day of Hanukkah to all beings who devote themselves to their Higher Selves, no matter how the temple crumbles.
