Newsletter: Hanukkah 2017



Shalom!

Humankind is created as man and woman, and the spiritual reality that this is expressing, demands responsibility from every person. It is a mystery that requires a sensitive heart from us. A heart that can also discern spiritual matters. Women have this built into their nature and can perceive the spiritual world easier and in a natural way more than men.

Men and women form a unity that expresses the unity of the Eternal One with his people. That is why Manoach’s wife saw the Angel of the Eternal One and understood what he was saying, see Judges 13:3. Our days are a time of paradox, on the one hand we see light coming from the Messiah and on the other side darkness in the world is increasing.

These realities we have tried to express in the new articles of this mailing. Especially in the poem by Cisca we see the struggle of Jerusalem. In the article about Cultural Zion we read the struggle of the Land of Israel in this time and her desire to be understood by the world. The article “A sensitive heart” speaks about the necessary unity of husband and wife.

The oil-rich pastries for Hanukkah remind us of the wonder that happened 2000 years ago when the lamp holder in the Temple continued to burn for eight days, during the rededication after having been destroyed by a terrible dictator. G’d gave us this miracle to show, that He will eventually free the world from dictators and darkness. The light can already be seen by a sensitive heart and gives us the courage to continue to trust in G’d and faithful believers; and to express this in the world, our congregations and our homes.

Chag Hanukkah sameach!
