    Hanukkah – the holiday miracle, a story about the fact that even in the most difficult cases, we need to be faithful to what is intended, and hope for the best! Today, I want to sincerely and wholeheartedly wish you did not know the grief and sorrow, to live every day with joy and love! Happy Hanukkah! חנוכה שמח!
