This has been the best ever Chanukah this year. Rob and I were reflecting on this realization as we drove home from singing songs with the elderly at the Hallmark nursing home/assisted living facility. We spent another night with the Chavurah including Carol and Rabbi Neal. First, we ate at Gokul then we lit candles, sang songs and socialized with the residents of Hallmark. It was such a lovely evening.
I feel truly blessed to have met Carol and Rabbi Neal. Blessed by their friendship, their leadership, their wisdom. Blessed to have such wonderful friends. Carol-Rachael-Heidi- Neshama-Leah. Blessed to be a part of the Transcendence Chavurah. Blessed to belong to B'nai Amoona. Blessed to have such a great family.
Here are some pictures from last night when my mom joined us for Chanukah.
Dreidel. Yes, that is dark chocolate gelt!
