Symbol Of The Eternal Soul

The festival of Chanukah celebrates two miracles – the military victory over the Syrian Greeks and that one small cruse of oil, good for one day, providing light for eight days. The miracle of the light, however, is the main focus and central theme of this festival.

Jerusalem Menorot

The bronze, four and a half meter high Menorat HaKnesset stands in the Menorah Plaza by the main entrance to Gan HaVradim.

Beha’alosecha: Light And Reason

Each detail in the Torah is laden with meaning. Surely the service vessels of the Temple had great importance and consequence over and above their routine service. In the description of the menorah that stood in chamber outside the Holy of Holies, Rabbi Avigdor Miller, zt”l, found layer upon layer of meaning.

The Limits Of Chinuch (Part V)

Question: Are there limitations to the mitzvah of chinuch?

The Greatest Gift I Ever Gave

Ordinarily, Chanukah is a time to hug and kiss the kids as we sing in front of the menorah. This past Chanukah was an exception. Instead of putting my arms around my children, I watched them light the menorah on a streaming video from my iPad while I rested comfortably in my hospital bed.

S. Florida Chassidic Chanukah Festival Better Than Ever

A Very Hong Kong Chanukah

To explain to my children what Chanukah was like for me as a young girl, I find I am just as inclined to recount what it wasn’t as I am to describe what it was.

Mitzvah Shopping

He must be a very important person to get such an important mitzvah, I heard them say, as Mr. Loewenstein, the local assemblyman, stepped up to recite the Torah blessing before the reading of the Ten Commandments. And Mr. Kleppish was too embarrassed to tell his wife that he only got third galilah on Shabbat Rosh Chodesh Chanukah.

An Ancient ‘Obsession’ with Sukkot Iconography

In some ways, Sukkot is the most contemporary of holidays. Many pay good money and invest a lot of time and effort to obtain a beautiful etrog-indeed its biblical name is "fruit of the beautiful tree"-and the most visually appealing lulav, hadasim and aravot. There are various schools of thought on whether to refrigerate or not to refrigerate, to wrap in aluminum foil or wet paper towel, all with the goal of preventing the four species from spoiling and jeopardizing their smell and visual appearance. There is no specific requirement that the schach covering the sukkah be alive-indeed it cannot be made of something still attached to the ground-but the entire atmosphere of Sukkot is one of growth, natural living, and disengaging from our comfort zone. Indeed, it is on the extended Sukkot holiday that a prayer is offered for rain, the source of life.

It’s My Opinion: An Ongoing Challenge

All across South Florida, the Jewish community is in festive Chanukah mode. There are parties and events scheduled throughout the entire eight days. There are gala concerts, menorah lightings and Chanukah programs and fairs. There are dreidels to spin and latkes to eat and presents to wrap.

Golden Flames Of Illumination

Illuminating melancholic winter nights, Chanukah flames have been lit all over the world for better than two thousand years - whether in menorahs of resplendent silver or humble wood and metal, opulent homes or dreary surroundings, days of glory or times of oppression - commemorating our spiritual ascent from the darkness of the Syrian-Greek decadence.

Quick & Kosher with Jamie Geller

Chanukah is such an exciting chag to look forward to. Not just because of the presents and the menorah, the lights and the chocolates - and the fact that I feel like it's a really fun kids' holiday - but it's so exciting to actually be able to serve freshly baked food.
