A Sabba for Hanukkah

Hanukkah will be upon us as we close out Shabbat and begin a new week. What a marvelous time to enter the celebration. Fun filled festivities with family and food and fire-lit candles (can I get any more words in there that begin with 'f' ??)

In the family the Sabba is so very important to this celebration. Through his learned eyes and keen intellect, he is able to weave the story of Hanukkah of the past with a story for the present. Only a Sabba can make life so relevant but enjoyable at the same time. He can present and maintain the delicate balance of being a people who have enemies and a G-d who is always present~ our Shomer (guard).

But many of us do not have such a Grandfather. This spy did not. So, we have determined, for at least the next few moments, to 'borrow' a Sabba. We are happy to share him with you to further your enjoyment of this marvelous remembrance of battle & victory.

Happy Hanukkah.
