Dreaming of Light

Rute Yair-Nussbaum / December 25, 2014

Audio   Source Sheets  
As Channukah is a rabbinic holiday, it becomes in Chassidut a metaphor for the power and potential of oral law. By lighting Channukah candles, we become exposed not only to the unrevealed part of Torah but to unrevealed realms of our own lives and surroundings. How canĀ Channukah be understood as a celebration of potential not yet actualized and dreams not yet made real? Part of Winter Week of Learning 2014
