Chanukah starts tonight>

Here is a poem from Liora for the first night:


Rededication of the Temple--
the Temple is the Body in these times.

Chanukah commemorates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem in 165 B.C. after its desecration by the Syrians. The eight-day observance stems from what is said to be a miracle in connection with the relighting of the N'er Tamid, the oil lamp in the Temple that was supposed to never be extinguished. Once the building was cleansed, a small vial of oil was found, but only enough to last a single day. Miraculously, the flame lasted eight days -- until more oil was located.

This is a quote from a dear friend
who loved children.

Once, he was scheduled to perform
at a event we were doing in San Diego
and his daughter was with him.

He would not leave for the event without his daughter.

The next day, we had a World Peace Celebration
In Starlight Bowl San Diego. It was on Earth Day
before they had the big event in Balboa Park
that is one of the biggest in the world.

The Rabbi loved people and was strolling around the park.
He had a tradition of always being late, so I told his
daughter I would give her $20.00 if she made sure he
was there to perform on time.

A picture was taking during the performance of the little
daughter during the performance coming up on stage
and talking to her Poppa. That picture is may have taken.
I am not sure. I saw it integrated in a mural to this Rabbi.

His name was Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach.

This is something he writes about Chanukah,
that begins tonight.

"our holy rabbis tell us that Chanuka is the light of the Messiah; the deepest, deepest, most hidden light in the world... a light that reaches the most hidden place in our hearts. We kindle the lights by the door or window of the house because on Chanuka all the doors and the windows of hearts are open to each other."

Conventional Blessings on the Candles:

Here are the words to the blessings on the candles
and how to do it:

Barukh atah Adonai, Eloheinu, melekh ha'olam
Blessed are you, Lord, our God, sovereign of the universe

asher kidishanu b'mitz'votav v'tzivanu
Who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us

l'had'lik neir shel Chanukah. (Amein)
to light the lights of Chanukkah. (Amen)

If you would like to hear the blessings, check out this RealPlayer recording of Cantor Pinchas Rabinovicz singing the blessings and other tunes from, the best source of Jewish Torah Audio on the net!  (Please note: This recording uses Ashkenazic pronunciation)

Click on the song titles to hear Rebbe Alter sing Chanukah favorites!

This is a song that is sung after the candles are lit.
I would enjoy singing this with my father when I was a child.

MAOZ TZUR - Transliteration  MP3 file

Maoz tzur yeshua-si
Lecha na-eh li-sha-beyach
Tikone bais ti-fee-lasi
Vi-sham todah ni-za-beyach.
Li-ase ta-chin mat-beyach
Mee-tzar ham-na-beyach
Az eg-more vi-sheer meez-mor
Chanukas ha-meez-beyach
Az eg-more vi-sheer meez-mor
Chanukas ha-meez-beyach.
O Rock of my salvation, with delight we praise You.
Restore the Temple where we will bring offerings.
When You will eliminate our enemies,*
Then I shall sing at the rededication.

*Hopefully, before too long we will discover the
best way to eliminate our enemies is make friends
out of them.--your eg
