Finding Light in Unexpected Places: Torah for Hanukkah
In the darkest time of the year, at a dark moment in Jewish history, it can be hard to find any brightness around us. This Hanukkah, Maharat will share eight pieces of Torah written by our students and alumni about finding light in unexpected places, whether in the story of Hanukkah’s unsung heroes, or through the history of the Hanukkah lights themselves. Check this page each evening of Hanukkah to read the night’s piece.
