Wow, Rabbi Raleigh. Thanks so much for making that connection. It makes perfect sense! Your words are meaningful and profound and I enjoyed reading them, and the message they send. I also noticed, reading between the lines, that there is absolutely nothing in the story of Hanukkah that has anything to do with giving expensive gifts that are wrapped in pretty boxes and tied with a bow. It is just my opinion, although I suspect you will agree, that the gifts we give on Hanukkah (and this year on Thanksgiving as well), should be in the form of moral, peace-promoting actions, and doing good, kind deeds that help to better the world in which we all coexist. Happy Thanksgivukkah to you and yours, and Mazel Tov about your brand new baby girl!
