Chanukah Sameach!

If you celebrate Chanukah, I hope you have a great one; full of good time and good things. Be happy, with friends, family, or on your own.

Be well, one and all.

Chanukah is on the way!

One surefire way of telling that Chanukah is soon, is the appearance of sufganiot (donuts) in the shops. And in the workplace:

soufganiot

I want you to know that the above picture was taken mere minutes after the supply – a fully laden tray – arrived in our kitchen. And, showing a rare instance of restraint, I had none. But I was tempted…

Chanukah starts, this year, on the night of Sunday 6 December 2015. Don’t say you haven’t been warned!

Matisyahu wishes you…

Happy Chanukah!

I don’t know what journey Matisyahu is on, where he is on it, or where he is going to. I do, however, hope he finds what he’s looking for.

Yes, they are using beer bottles for their chanukiyah!

Yes, they are using beer bottles for their chanukiyah!

We were out with friends on motzei Shabbat, having a meal at one of our favorite places: the micro-brewery and restaurant, Jems. In the midst of the proceedings, there was a shout calling the crowd to order. And then, from behind the bar, as they lit the candles for the fourth night of Chanukah, the boss and his aid started belting out the brachot (blessings) and songs. And people joined in. I love it. A simple, joyful experience.

Chanukah Sameach!
