נס גדול היה פה

Hanukkah.... Our victory over the Greeks and restoration of our Temple and practice. So many thoughts of a life of resisting assimilation. Being acutely aware of how easy it is to compromise and begin to not only look like the nations but to actually desire to be them. To throw off the loving restraints of Torah.

One of The 2 Spies constant heart-breaks is how our people choose to not embrace their full inheritance and come home to Israel. Never really understanding what it is that holds one 'out there'. Of course, we have to admit... until one has 'tasted' Israel- even with all it's difficulties- one will never know the maximum of what they are missing. It is all too easy, like the Israelites wandering in the desert, to limit G-d and doubt the goodness of His gift.

As we come into this season of reflection and celebration, may we throw off the restraint of the Galut.... the shroud... and make the decision followed by the steps to pack it up and get home. Come join us in saying. נס גדול היה פה

 A Great Miracle Happened HERE!
