A truly educational experience on Hanukkah

The connection between Hanukkah and education.

The Hebrew word is “chinuch," but it means “education." But just the fact that it is based upon the word “chayn" and “Hanukkah" indicates what kind of education we’re talking about.

Unfortunately, this kind of schooling is not necessarily the kind that we actually get. This is why society is so confused these days, and so many people have their priorities mixed up.

This does not make for personal rectification, and clearly from the headlines these days, it does not result in world rectification either, at least not in a safe and straightforward manner.
