This Shabbat, Shabbat Mevarchim, we celebrate and bless the start of the new month of Tevet, which starts next week. And at the end of Shabbat, the Havdalah candle will make way for the Hanukkah candles. The days are now getting longer. Light is entering from everywhere.
Leonard Cohen, z”l, wrote in his poem song, Anthem, “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” Although each of us has cracks, that gives each of us the chance to let the light in.
This Shabbat and this Hanukkah, embrace both joy and hope.
Enjoy this wonderful Hanukah music as Six13 and the Maccabeats go head to head.
A Hanukkah throwdown!
