Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah, a holiday I’ve celebrated with Jewish friends. When my kids were little, we often went to Hanukkah celebrations or even lit a menorah at home. Why? Because of what the holiday celebrates — religious freedom.
I’m not the church-going type. But I strongly support tolerance and freedom of religion, which is at the heart of the Hanukkah story.
So Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends and readers. And please share with us your family’s Hanukkah traditions!
