    Message 1 of 2 , Dec 27, 2005
      Dear Friends,

      I can barely keep up with all the concerts this year for
      Chanukah -- there's so much going on! If you want to hear some of my
      new Chanukah songs, stop by the Vorhand Shteeble tonight, if you get
      this in time. Or come to my shul this weekend for a special musical
      davening (see info below). May the Chanukah candles burn bright
      enough to illuminate the godliness inside each of us -- the real
      miracle is that we are each given the potential to accomplish so much
      good in the world.
