  1. How wonderful to see & hear you here Keren ~ lighting & saying the prayer for Chanukah. I will be joining in lighting the candles ( my time in Adelaide SA!!! ) on the eve of Chanukah 16th Dec. Thank you for your faithfulness. Love Jenny

  2. This is so beautiful Keren. One minor observation: on the timetable above you have the list of dates and candles for the Hannukah season, finishing on the 21st. I had a mild panic becasue I’ve invited friends for a meal and celebration of the 8 candles on the 23rd. When i looked more closely I saw that your numbering went from 20th-21st-22nd-21st. Panic over.

    • OY! Thank you for pointing that out Mary. Corrected. 🙂 Have a wonderfully special 8th night celebration with your friends. May the gentle splendor of His light reflected in the candle lights surround and bless you all.
