Joyous Hanukkah!

Everything about the Jewish faith extends beyond its juridical limits into the roots of human civilization, especially in the West. The struggle to practice one's faith and conform to lawful dictates of conscience, and the premises themselves upon which the legitimacy of that struggle is founded, are (in Thomas Cahill's expression) truly "gifts of the Jews." So as Christians we bow with humility and gratitude in this season to our elder siblings in faith and culture.
