To all my fellow members of The Tribe, Happy Chanukah!
I told my children today that Chanukah was, in fact, two miracles:
The first was the miracle of victory itself; a smallish band of rebels winning victory? Miracle.
The second, of course, was the burning oil that lasted until more could be sanctified. Miracle two.

May the best of last year be the worst of this year.

Passover is coming soon. Please consider a tax-deductible gift to Connections Israel so that IDF soldiers on duty can celebrate.
(Full disclosure: I’m on the governing board of Connections Israel.)
