Hello friends,

I hope you all had a meaningful Chanukah. And I wish you all an easy and meaningful fast this Thursday, Asara B’Teves.

The fact that this fast day takes place just one week or so after Chanukah, during a time of year considered festive by others, makes one think. A few years ago, I addressed the confluence of these days on our calendar in a series of three classes I called "Chanukah – The War you didn’t know" or "Chanuka, Asara B’Teves, and Christianity".

The classes are on the shul’s website and can be accessed here:

They can also be accessed individually here:

Class one:

Class two:

Class three:

(Other recordings can be found on the site as well.)

I invite you all to listen.

Stay warm
Rabbi Davidovich
