May you and yours enjoy the blessings of Hanukkah as you light candles to fulfill the obligation enacted by the Sages. May the blessings, miracles and wonders from your household spill over to all the other households in our Nation and in the world, so that the world at large can benefit from the ancient wisdom and traditions of the Jewish people.
In the broader spirit of Hanukkah, which means “dedication”, let us all dedicate ourselves, Jew as well as Gentile, to wishing for a miracle that brings about a better world — a world where we accept and love each other and where we rejoice in each others’ celebrations, as I plan to do on Wednesday evening at the lighting of the second candle at the Embassy of Israel in Washington.
