Today we light the first candle on the menorah.
No, we don’t celebrate every holiday. I had spent many years living with a Jewish family when in New York and then my ex- of many years was Jewish. So for a lot of my adult life, I had celebrated Hanukkah. And I wish to remember the Jewish holidays fondly with the “extended” families who have been and still are a part of my life.
Happy Hanukkah to all who light the candles on the menorah.
