Yeah, the donuts are great; standing in a supermarket and hearing the announcement that there will be a public candle lighting in the center of the store - make you feel like you are all involved in Hanukkah. Particularly those like me, who have the special privilege of living in Modi'in - the home town of the Maccabees. But, as the very name, Hanukkah - which means dedication (it's the same root of my name, Hanoch) reminds us - it is a time to (re)dedicate ourselves to the Land of Israel and ALL the people of Israel. That is the 'Light' that the Maccabees have passed on to us is - and THAT should be our inspiration to rise to the occasion - to: Be Maccabee Inspired!
