Hanukkah Night 8, 5776 – Seeing in Detail

Text by Rabbi Katy Z. Allen Photos by Gabi Mezger

Eight lights burning,

sending out light,

sending out heat –

the hanukkiah is full.

VT red orange yellow

May our hearts be full as well,

of light

and warmth,

VT red tree

allowing us to see

in detail

both the pain

and the beauty

VT shiny red leaf

of the world.
