The word Chanukah literally means “dedication” and refers to the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem after it was defiled by the Syrian Greeks. The root letters khet, nun, khaf also connote education, as in the Hebrew word, Chinuch. The link between Chanukah and education is a reminder that at this time of rejoicing in the miracle of Chanukah, we ought to take the opportunity to rededicate ourselves to the lifelong pursuit of Jewish learning and the sacred task of passing our traditions down from one generation to the next. Wishing you and yours a

Happy Chanukah!

Good Shabbes,


Rabbi Gersh Zylberman
