In Celebration on Hanukkah Miracles
December 13, 2021 by
This year for Hanukkah, miracles have been abundant. Milton ran one of its four vaccine clinics on the fourth day of Hanukkah. What better way to celebrate a holiday about redemption and rededication? The parents were giddy, saying this was the best Hanukkah present they could receive. Kids were eager to plan a long-awaited playdate or trip. We shared brachot – from the expected shehecheyanu to contemporary blessings written just for this occasion – to elevate this as a sacred experience, an opportunity for students to protect themselves and their community.
Throughout the week, our campuses were filled with Hanukkah cheer, including kids and adults decked out in their holiday finest and silliest. We are so deeply grateful for the mundane this year – for being able to sing together or to distribute gelt – each of these a small miracle with great resonance.
