If you haven’t seen it already, this photo is one of our favorite Chanukah photos of this season. Somehow, these physical pixels manage to capture (no filter!) the mystical and meaningful connection between the light of the candles and the light of our souls.
See our RECAP CHANUKAH 2013 page for links to our Chanukah celebrations, both as a family and together with the students when they returned after Thanksgiving Break.
Finals Week is now around the corner, with Reading Day this Tuesday. This year’s Midnight Breakfast event will feature “TAKING FLIGHT” a film produced by UAlbany student Jeremy Wallace who will be present for the 30 minute screening and taking questions following.
We’re trying a new Book BuyBack fundraiser this semester, stop by with your books or email us your ISBN’s (no dashes, 13 digits) and if we can get you a good price, why not benefit Shabbos House at the same time?
Mendel lost his voice just after Chanukah, hopefully to get it back soon, already showing signs of improvement. Thanks to all for the patience, concern and understanding.
We will have Shabbos Dinner this coming week, as usual this time of year, 7pm. Orthodox prayer services will begin earlier this week due to the Tenth of Tevet fast day, stay tuned for details.
