I share a powerful message from Rabbi Yitzchok Dovid Grossman of Migdal Or, the Disco Rabbi, about meeting people where they are, and then take you to a Chanukah candlelighting at the Rhode Island State House with my father over 40 years ago. Also, in terms of Chanukah candles, we go from 1-8, but another custom was going from 8-1- what is the derech eretz lesson of that?

Plus, a word about the dreidel and a message for a Hamas leader bent on the destruction of Israel.

This show is dedicated to the loving memory of my dear mother, Gertrude T. Adler, Shvartzel Tova bat Moshe Yashayahu and Glicka, who was kissed into the next world on October 1st.
