Goodbye Hanukkah, hello history

Light and darkness - Hanukkah all year round.

As the light of Hanukkah fades once again into the dark of winter and history, it is important to recall that saying goodbye to Hanukkah does not have to mean saying goodbye to its light until next year.

Hanukkah gave us a taste of the light that we are supposed to try and access all year round, and history is showing us what happens when we don’t.
