Why Celebrate Hanukkah?

BeetlebopMenorah

  • Because Judaism may be a small light, but it can shine brightly.
  • Because ┬áit is good to take pride in who we are.
  • Because miracles do happen.
  • Because it doesn’t hurt Christmas to get a little pushback.
  • Because winter is long and dark (in the northern hemisphere) and we need warmth and light.
  • Because children love it.
  • Because it is good to stop for a moment and enjoy a little candlelight with the one(s) you love.
