Newsletter: Hanukkah



The eight days of Hanukkah (November 28 – December 5) are busy, activity requiring, jubilant moments in the year. Radiant faces, expecting new presents packed as packages or as renewed relationships. The feast looks back at a time never to forget. A mix of victory and sorrow. Soldiers brutal and killing innocent Israelites. Brave Jewish soldiers fighting back. Baby boys killed because their parents wanted them to be circumcised in the Jewish tradition described in the Torah.

What we learn from this part of our history is never to give up. Whatever enemy we are up against we won’t give up our freedom. Freedom of thought and freedom of action. That is also what this website is all about. Next to articles about home making and exploring Israel you will find news about women being oppressed. Fighting for freedom.

We encourage them, we encourage you, to never give up! The Woman Of Valor (WOV) team aims to be an instrument in the lives of women who realize that this is the time to grow deeper in faith and practice.

On behalf of the WOV team,
Happy Hanukkah!

WoV editor in chief
