Happy 1st Night of Hanakkah!

On Hanukkah, we’re reminded how it is faith that provides the light to guide us through difficult times!

Blessed are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the Universe, who has sanctified us with commandments, and commanded us to light Hanukkah candles.

What is the proper greeting for Hanukkah?

To wish someone a Happy Hanukkah, say “Hanukkah Sameach!” (Happy Hanukkah) or simply “Chag Sameach!” (Happy Holiday). Or if you want to show off your Hebrew skills, say “Chag Urim Sameach!” (urim means “lights”).

On this, the first night of Hanakkah, may you and yours experience the Light that brings peace, faith and understanding during this blessed time of year!
