A prayer of light

Chanukah. The holiday of light. 8 candles we count - from the first day to the last. And every day we add one more, for more light.

And its a family holiday. We light the candles together, saying the blessings and singing, a family together.

We went to Jerusalem for the last lighting this year. In "Nahalaot" where many very orthodox jews live. For them its a time of bringing together the non ortohdox with the jewish religion.

This man was giving a show. And a good one I must say. He believe in all his heart that he is doing the right thing. About 150 people where there watching and answering "Amen".

He was praying. For all of us. I believe so. And not just those outside his window.


For all mankind.
