י״א בכסלו ה׳תשע״ד (November 14, 2013)
Leah Weintraub, editor of the JustJewIt (digital magazine with the huge amounts of useful information and entertainment to anyone interested in the Jewish way of life), has just released its newest issue dedicated to the month of Kislev in which we celebrate Chanukah.
As with all Jewish holidays, Chanukah is an opportunity to tap in to the specific spiritual energy imbued by its historical miracles and G-dly revelation, with the added strength and potency that becomes available with every new year. The Maccabean victory and the discovery of the one remaining flask of pure oil to light the menorah in the temple espouse the faith, courage and bravery we need to overcome our personal and collective challenges.
In his in-depth Kabbalistic explanation of The 36 Lights of the Menorah, Rabbi Dov Ber Pinson highlights how our candle lighting reveals into this world the 36 primordial lights of the Garden of Eden, and truly reveal our own inner light. Also read The Thing About Oil by Rabbi Naftali Silberberg to appreciate its transcendent connection to Chanukah.
Exemplifying Chanukah’s miraculous qualities is the story of one Rabbi’s quest to light a menorah in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, beautifully told by Libi Astaire.
Make sure to watch the fifth video of Rabbi Manis Friedman’s Just Jew It dating and marriage series, in which he explains The Spiritual Chemistry of Physical Intimacy.
Probably you will also enjoy the Chanukah FAQ’s produced by Chabad.org and the insights from world-renowned teachers; we welcome your feedback as to how they may have inspired you.
