Last Night of Hanukkah (5778)

Festival of Lights

The Eighth Day and last day of Hanukkah was brought in last night with the lighting of all eight candles on each hanukkiah  It is true that the days are short and the nights are long, but soon it will be the reverse when the days after December 21st become longer. As I write this, I reflect on what all good and decent people around the world have in their hearts as a long-standing desire and a hope: peace, prosperity and good will for all. May the cynics be silenced; may the heartless find heart. May this come into fruition; may this come true.
