Hanukkah, A Time of Re-Dedication

Dear Comunidad,

I would like to take a moment to wish all of my Jewish friends a blessed Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, an eight-day Jewish celebration commemorating the re-dedication of the Holy Temple – the Second Temple – in Jerusalem.

I pray that, regardless of how we call upon Godde in our lives, we can take this opportunity to re-dedicate ourselves to walking alongside each other in love and understanding.

Recibir a Cristo,
Eva

Blessed are you, Lord, our Godde, sovereign of the universe
Who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us
to light the lights of Hanukkah. Amen.

Blessed are you, Lord, our Godde, sovereign of the universe
Who performed miracles for our ancestors in those days at this time. Amen.

Blessed are you, Lord, our Godde, sovereign of the universe
who has kept us alive, sustained us, and enabled us to reach this season. Amen.
