From Rabbi Kelly Levy

“Chanukah, oh Chanukah! Come light the menorah, let’s have a party we’ll all dance the hora…” Like some of you, this song runs on a constant replay in my head during this time of year. We have reached the time of great celebration, as we once again recall the story of the mighty Maccabees and their victory over King Antiochus and the Syrian army. We celebrate the Festival of Lights with sufganiot (jelly filled donuts), latkes, dreidles, songs, and of course, we light the Chanukiah.
But, this joyous time is also quite dark for some. Chanukah arrives in dark, cold winter. For many people, this is a time of sadness and difficulty. Unfortunately for some, Chanukah is not a time of celebration, but a reminder that they are alone, or that their family is far away, or that they are not healthy enough to join in the Chanukah fun.
As we come together this Friday for our annual Chanukah dinner, Shabbat services, and special Confirmation services, I invite you to reach out to someone who may not have a family to celebrate with. Give them a phone call, head to their home for a visit and some latkes, or bring them to your own family celebration. At this time of great joy, may we all have the opportunity to see the light of the Chanukah candles, the feel the strength of the Maccabees, and taste the delicious deep-fried goodies. We wish you all Chag Urim Sameach, a joyful Festival of Lights and a Happy Chanukah!

Shabbat Shalom!

Rabbi Levy
