8 words which describe my Chanukah



Day 67- War in Israel


Sadness - we lost so much and still losing so many young lives.

Despair - how long will the surviving hostages suffer?

Disbelief - abandonment by friends, social justice organizations and the people you thought stand in side of right.

Shock - never again could be now!

Fear - what will the future of Jews world wide look like.

Maybe - my Judaism does matter?

Survival- only Israel can guarantee our survival.

Anger - the IDF fundamentally let me down my illusion is shattered!


We also understand that light can defeat darkness.
