Chag Hanukkah Sameach!

Hanukkah is a celebration of the victory of the forces of light over the forces of darkness.

Despite the efforts of those dark forces, the faith and commitment of the Jewish people led to the eight day miracle of the oil that burned in the light in the resanctified Holy Temple in Jerusalem.

In these uncertain times, this is a comforting message: that with faith and commitment we too can defeat the darkness and bring light into the world. 

Let us pray that the message of the Hanukkah Lights will illuminate the everyday life of everyone personally, of all Canadians, and of the society at large, for a brighter life in every respect.

Chag Hanukkah Sameach!
