Chanukah as a Holiday to Celebrate with Children

Rabbi Royi Shaffin

The COVID pandemic has accentuated, for many of us, the importance of family, friends, and community. Being cautious, and thinking twice before meeting with other people, has reminded us to make every moment count.

This Chanukah, we may wish to concentrate on our families, friends, and congregation at SBJC, but most of all, on our children and grandchildren, as Chanukah is very much a children's holiday. Let us make sure to have plenty of dreidels, to give children Chanukah gelt in both chocolate coin form and actual coins, and to make plenty of delicious latkes and jelly donuts. It is important to make every effort to celebrate Chanukah with our children and grandchildren, whether in person or by Zoom.

Our children and grandchildren are the future of Judaism. As such, it is upon us to invest in their Jewish education. Every Jewish child should be in some sort of Jewish day school or afternoon and Sunday school. Every Jewish child should have a Jewish camp experience. Every Jewish child should experience a trip to Israel.

If Chanukah is about the survival of Judaism, against all odds, then investing in Jewish education is our modern-day way of insuring the survival of Judaism.

This Chanukah, let us think about how we, like the Maccabees, can insure the survival of Judaism for future generations.

ABOUT CANDLE-LIGHTING
It is considered a great mitzvah and responsibility to honor the Sabbath by lighting candles 18 minutes before sunset on Friday evening.

This unique commandment, entrusted to the Jewish woman, is rich with meaning and purpose.
