Audio Source Sheets
Channukah is the only holiday that must be observed at home. What makes a space into a home? We will explore how the halakhic definitions of home (is it where you sleep? where you pay rent?) open into a discussion in Chassidut of what it means to be at home. We will learn, based on kabbalistic and Chassidic sources, how these definitions shed a light into the essence of Channukah. part of Winter Week of Learning 2014
