I know, I know, Chanuka ended last night. But I just HAD to share these memories for James' Weekend Reflections.
The proper way is to display your chanukia (Chanuka menorah) in a window or at the door or even outside in order to "publicize the miracle" that a cruse of ritually pure olive oil lasted for 8 whole days when the Temple of old was rededicated.
I wonder . . . would showing the Chanuka lights on Skype webcam would qualify as "publicizing the miracle"?
And my mouse pretended it was part of the celebration by bearing light and changing to the colors of the candles.
Tonight we return to the two Sabbath candles.
Gam zu le-tova. Shabbat shalom.
