For tonight’s fifth candle-lighting, Rabbi Tvzi Graetz of kehillah Hod-ve-Hadar, gives an inspiring talk connecting the poet Chaim Nachman Bialik, the Maccabees, and Zionism with the meaning of Chanukah as a Jewish and Zionist holiday–one that encircles all Jews.

Rabbi Sarah Cohen, the rabbi of the Hevel Eilot Regional Council, and also at Kibbutz Ketura, leads us with the lighting of the seventh candle, and tells of two Chanukah menorahs of renewal, peace, and love that are lit at Kibbutz Ketura every year.

Lighting a last candle with Rabbi Arnie Ben Dor, of kehillat Ya’ar Ramot in Jerusalem. He talks about being surrounded or enveloped by mitzvot. A beautiful talk for the last night of Chanukah candle lighting.
