The eight days of Chanukah has passed for 2009. Joey and I shared with family and friends a lovely, warm holiday, filled with the light and peace of Hashem’s love and learning, latkes and laughter, dreidels and gifts, and good health and joy. We kept the fire roaring, scented the air with fresh-cut flowers, decorated coffee tables with bowls of fruit, and supped on delicious traditional holiday dishes. We’re so thankful for the blessings of the past year and so hopeful for the prosperity of the year to come.
I wish for you, my friend, a holiday filled with all the traditions you hold dear. May the good Lord shed his light on you and yours, and grant you a prosperous and happy New Year.
