A joyous Chanukah party was held at Beth Hallel last night, the 7th night of this Festival.
Children and adults were singing and dancing, the Rabbi and Rebetsen giving out "gelt" to the kids, and of course terrific food including many traditional dishes- latkes, kugel, falafel, hummus and more.
My evening was made even better by a visit from a lovely couple I met in Jerusalem, who are in our area to visit relatives. They are Messianic Jews, originally from the UK who have ahealing ministry in Jerusalem. We had a great reunion and they enjoyed seeing our Synagogue and the mischpucha there having so much fun.
I also had the pleasure of playing music with my own children on guitar & clarinet and drums, as well as some other talented additions to the group.
Happy Chaukah, and a Joyous New Year to all.
