      Shalom Friends,

      The joyous festival of Chanukah begins this evening. While we
      celebrate with the mitzvah of lighting candles, eating special
      foods, and with song and dance- Chanukah is a time to reflect on the
      miracles, both great and small, that Hashem has bestowed upon us and
      our forebears.

      Check out http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NYCJewishMusic/files/essays/
