May we always celebrate the hope of G-d’s people in the midst of darkness.
Hey-yo! Light the candles!
Hanukkah begins tonight at sunset.
A quote attributed to Martin Buber, a Jewish theologian, addressing a group of Catholic priests:
My good friends, what is the difference between you and me? Both of us, all of us, believe, because we are religious, in the coming of the messiah. You believe that the messiah came, went back, and that you are waiting for him to come for a second coming. We Jews believe he hasn’t come yet, but that he will come. In other words, we are all waiting. You for the second coming, we for the first. Let’s wait together.
Light a candle, and watch for Messiah.
