Newsletter: Hannukah 2014
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!
