Happy Hanukkah

John 1:5

And this Living Expression is the Light that bursts through gloom

the Light that darkness could not diminish!

Yad Vashem Holocaust museum has the actual Hanukkah menorah you can see in this picture, and tells the accompanying story:

On Hanukkah 1932, just one month before Hitler came to power, Rachel Posner, wife of Rabbi Dr. Akiva Posner, took this photo of the family Hanukkah menorah from the window ledge of the family home looking out on to the building across the road decorated with Nazi flags. On the back of the photograph, Rachel Posner wrote in German (translated here):

Chanukah 5692 (1932)

“Death to Judah” So the flag says

“Judah will live forever” So the light answers!

May you know the Glory of God's light more than ever at this wonderful time
