ASK THE RABBI
WHAT KIND OF TEST?
By RABBI DR RAYMOND APPLE
The Lubavitcher Rebbe said that the Chanukah lights fulfil a double purpose. They are a source of light within the house, and they also symbolize the duty of bringing light to the world outside. This is suggested by Midrashic sources which speak of the Jewish people as the world’s shammash, its “servant light.”
WHAT IS HANUKKAH
All around the world, Jewish adults and children celebrate the Jewish festival of lights called Hanukkah. The date of Hanukkah changes every year, because it depends on the calendar, but it will always fall in November or December. This year Erev Channukah begins at sundown 24 Kislev.
