Happy Hannukah

Eight Days of Hanukkah from Tablet Magazine on Vimeo.

Hannukah - the holiday of universal freedom!

Philosemitism shines forth! Jews are in! The American dream is but an extension of the ancient Hebrew's struggles !

In case you don't get the irony of a Hannukah song, sung by a Syrian American and written by one of the most conservative Senators in the U.S. senate - and a Mormon to boot - catch this reflection on the holiday- by a thoughtful Toronto Jew that appeared in yesterday's NY Times.

By the way, and talking about cultural appropriation, didn't Hatch's mezuzah make you do a double take? I think I liked December better when all we had to put up with was non stop Christmas carols and manger scenes on every corner.

Happy Hannukah !
