The holiday of Hanukkah always comes in the winter when we need the glow and warmth of the light the most. There is so much darkness in this world. We read and watch everyday about how divided we are and how violent the world is. The darkness keeps us apart from each other, even from the person sitting next to us. Judaism teaches us, however, that at the darkest times the responsibility for bringing light to the world is on us.
There is a wonderful Hanukkah song in Hebrew that asks each of us to come together to banish the darkness that surrounds us. Each of us has a small candle, but when we add our candles to others WE SHINE BRIGHTER TOGETHER. We're calling this campaign
"WE SHINE BRIGHTER TOGETHER." Every day we will release an inspiring video to watch before you light the Hanukkah candles. Share them with friends to help spread the light and use
#weshinebrightertogether on social media.
Watch as Rabbi Ed Feinstein kicks off the holiday week reflecting on the joy of being kind to each other as we add light to light, making each of us stronger. Wishing you a Happy Hanukkah!
