Why We Light the Hanukkah Menorah Hanukkah is known as the Festival of Lights and celebrates a great miracle G-d performed for our ancestors. After defeating Antiochus Epiphanies, the Jewish people led by the Maccabees cleansed the Temple in Jerusalem of pagan idols and re-lit the Menorah, the seven-branched candelabra. There was only enough oil […]
The Mystery of the Hidden Light The first time God speaks in Genesis He says, “Let there be light, and there was light.” (Gen. 1:3).

The Hebrew month of Sivan is the month in which the Lord descended on Mt. Sinai and spoke the 10 Commandments to Israel on Shavuot/Pentecost.
