I live in a neighborhood which is half Jewish and half Christian. A few years back Hanukkah and Christmas fell at the same time, and I cannot begin to describe the beauty of the neighborhood that year...one house with the Hanukkah candles and the next decorated for Christmas. There wasn't a house without a decoration.Mary
Hope it will bring peace to everybody... Happy Hanuka..
Wow how quickly the time moves. Its Hanukkah already! I really need to get my head out of the snow and take notice. lol Beautiful
Yes, Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends! (And to everyone!) The first Hebrew word I learned was Shalom. When I was a kid, I learned it from this sweet little old Jewish man who owned a pizzaria. Every Sunday evening, I would pop into his pizzaria to get a pizza, and every week he would test me on different Hebrew words. Imagine that? The son of a Baptist minister being taught a completely different view of religion. It was wonderful.
Happy Hanukkah!much love
I'm a pagan...and in my home town I'm the odd one..no Jew's..mostly catholic, baptists and a few church of chirst..
I would love to learn more about Hannukkah - seems like such a lovely celebration!Shalom!
We're about to go downstairs (better late than never) and light our menorah. Our Yule tree is already up and blazing...Since I come from Jewish roots and Matt from Catholic, we celebrate everything but Kwanzaa...and we'd do that one too if we had African-American roots!-Fae-Fae
Mozeltoff! I lived for many years with a wonderful Jewish community around me. I miss that!! The other day shopping my DH and I spied a couple and the husband was wearing a yamaka...I wanted to hug them!!I didn't ..but wonderful to see!Hugs, Sarah
A blessed and happy Hanukkah to you and yours!
