Newsletter: Hannukah 2014



Dear friends,

Soon we will celebrate Hanukka 5775!

For Israel it has been a very difficult year again and in this time it helps to remember how, in 160 BCE the Lord gave the victory over the bad dictator Anthiochus. He was trying to destroy Israel and it was a very difficult struggle that Israel had to go through. Now we celebrate this victory during Hanukka!

The enemies of Israel in our days are also seeking to humiliate and destroy Israel. It is time to stand up for Israel wherever you are and pray for her protection.

A poem is written by Cisca, about women in this world who are struggling for  freedom and righteousness in the section Poetry. A recipe for Hannuka by Co is also new. Anne wrote in ‘Teaching the children’ about the miracle of the healing of Na’aman.

Golda Meir, the first woman Prime Minister in Israel, was an Eshet Chayil. She is an inspiration to all of us and to this day for thousands of women. This article you will find in the section ‘Woman of Valor’.

Happy Hanukka!
