We want to wish everyone a Happy Chanukah as we enter into the Festival Of Dedication, when we remember a time in Israel’s history when a remnant of faithful Jews rose up against massive persecution and restored true worship of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! We remember the miracle of the oil lasting 8 days, until the new oil could be readied, and we recall the re-dedication of the temple that had been defiled by pagan sacrifices. Yeshua celebrated this festival in Jerusalem, and made one of His most impassioned declarations of His deity as messiah when He proclaimed “The Father and I are one”.
We want to invite everyone to join us at Or Chaim as we celebrate this special time of the year! This Shabbat, at 10:30am, we will recall the story of Chanukah, as
we re-dedicate our own temples, and re-kindle the light of the world that is in us! It is a time for the whole family, so invite your friends and neighbors! WE WILL NOT HAVE A POTLUCK ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE, SINCE WE WILL HAVE A SPECIAL CHANUKAH HAVDALAH AT 6PM AT THE MCDOWELL’S! However, we will have a fellowship time with coffee and sufganeot (filled donuts) following the service!
