Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us by His commandments and has commanded us to kindle the lights of Hanukkah.
Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who wrought miracles for our fathers in days of old, at this season.
Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has kept us alive, and has preserved us, and enabled us to reach this time.
Our family recognized Hanukkah this evening. This year Hanukkah began on December 2 and ended on the 9th. We typically recognize this Holy event one evening during its designated week. We failed to do so this year but we still wanted to take the time to remember how God can make the impossible possible. We kindled the flames of the menorah and dined on fried chicken, latkes and applesauce.
