First night… Happy Hanukkah

Posted on by

הנרות הללו אנחנו מדליקים על הנסים ועל הנפלאות ועל התשואות ועל המלחמות שעשית לאבותינו בימים ההם, בזמן הזה על ידי כהניך הקדושים.
וכל שמונת ימי חנוכה הנרות הללו קודש הם, ואין לנו רשות להשתמש בהם אלא להאיר אותם בלבד כדי להודות ולהלל לשמך הגדול על נסיך ועל נפלאותיך ועל ישואותיך.

The above is a traditional Hanukkah prayer… and below is the Translation for people.

We light these lights for the miracles and the wonders, for the redemption and the battles that you made for our forefathers, in those days at this season, through your holy priests. During all eight days of Hanukkah these lights are sacred, and we are not permitted to make ordinary use of them except for to look at them in order to express thanks and praise to Your great Name for Your miracles, Your wonders and Your salvation.

Sadly, I broke my dreidel… stepped on it while I was cleaning, but I’m sure if I keep looking later tonight or tomorrow I’ll find another one (I think I had three total)
Oh, last thing… saw an ‘old friend’ today and she gave me some Hanukkah Gelt which I thought was cool… Interestingly I didn’t know she was Jewish.
