Hanerot Halalu~ Countdown to Chanukah!

Hanerot Halalu, an ancient chant mentioned in the Talmud (Soferim 20:6), reminds us of the sacred nature of the Hanukkah lights that are lit to commemorate and publicize the Chanukah miracles. The song states that our sole intent in kindling Hanukkah lights is to publicize the miracle. Do you have your Hanukiah cleaned and ready to go?  Bought your candles yet? Getting ready is half the celebration!!
