Although Hanukkah does not begin until sundown on Dec 18, it seems important to honor its promise and its beauty this year when anti-Semitic hate speech and violence have risen dramatically. What is the story of identity and struggle beneath Hanukkah that makes it different from the winter holy days of Christian and northern Celtic or other pagan traditions? How does the “miracle” and wonder of the burning oil come into it? Is that the only miracle? Join us for a pre-Hanukkah reflection.
Join us in person or by Zoom.
