The Hanukkah narrative is of a festival of miracles and light but what if we changed the paradigm and made it about a journey of spiritual, collective, and justice-seeking?
Hanukkah can be a profoundly spiritual and psycho-socially charged moment, a call to us and our families to both ground ourselves in the particulars of Judaism while simultaneously reaching higher for the sake of the broader communities in which we live.
In this class, Rabbi Lydia Medwin guides students through text study and an insight into Jewish wisdom, providing tools to help us dig into our own inner lives, clarify our own sparks, and reflect the light that our world so desperately needs.
