The Miracle of Chanukah


Last year I was inspired by a grand, beautiful menorah that @iwe and his family made for Chanukah. I convinced my husband to help me make one, and here it is! We made it of PVC that we sawed, glued and painted, and used battery-operated candles. (It is, at least, OSHA-approved.)

I will be lighting our other menorah with real candles and the new one Sunday evening, the lead candle (Shamas) and the first candle. It is a poignant time to remember not only the Maccabees who fought against the Seleucids, but all those men who have battled against the odds.
