The mom found our Menorah and lit candles last night the eighth night of Hanukkah (2nd of Tevet, 5776). I had to investigate of course (I'm privileged you see) - hey Mom that's too warm! Time to get down afore dem candles singe my whiskers!
Here is another version in blue hue....

|2015 Hanukkah began Kislev 25, 5776|
Our Menorah was made to look like the one in front of the Knesset in Israel.
The Knesset Menorah is at the edge of the Rose Garden across from the Knesset building, a work of the Jewish English artist of German origin Benno Elkan (1877 – 1960). The sculpture is 4.30 meters high, 3.5 meters wide, and weighs 4 tons.
The main theme of the work depicts the spiritual struggles of the Jewish people and it is engraved with the passage “Not by strength and not by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord who rules over all” (Zechariah 4, 6).
The Menorah includes engravings of biblical figures and events from the tradition and history of the Jewish people. The engravings on the six side branches of the Menorah portray the fate of the Israeli people since exiled from our land and engravings on the center branch portray history since the beginning of the return to the land and until the re-establishment of the State of Israel.
Chag Sameach! Happy Holidays
L'Shana Haba a b'Yerushalayim!
Next Year in Jerusalem!
Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. May they prosper who love you.
-Psalm 122:6, KJV
Update on Silvia. Still need a hundred dollars by tomorrow. Silvia said she has until 9am Wednesday to have money. She hasn't been able to get going with training due to some hold up on her user ID. She went to the office this morning and seems like part of the problem has been that her tablet is blocking due to security settings! Although she "passed" tests she has taken so far, this office of HR wants top testers. The manager was very encouraging however and said to just concentrate on training and don't do any more tests until the end of December.
She still has the opportunity to clean this new home to get it ready. I hope she can still work on
that home too.
Please help us make tomorrow's rent. She has a friend that lets her borrow his car - he might be able to pay rent for next week, but not tomorrow.
