On this special day in this season of good will and joy, we offer the following for thought and reflection.
Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
– Matthew 2:1-2
Blessed are you who has commanded us to kindle the light of Hanukkah.
Blessed are you who has performed miracles for our fathers in ancient days at this season.
– Hanukkah blessing
