[14:13] Skye McLeod: laughs
[14:13] Baron Klaus Wulfenbach chuckles
[14:13] Walter Schnogginstein grins.
[14:13] Yenta Bernheim: I am chatty
[14:13] Artemiss Luminos: *giggles*
[14:13] Ceejay Writer: WE may be sisters.
[14:13] Bodhisatva Paperclip: Heee
[14:13] Yenta Bernheim: Let me begin
[14:13] Darlingmonster Ember takes notes
[14:13] June Forsythe pulls out her leatherbound journal to take notes
[14:14] Yenta Bernheim: The topic we have chosen is Chanukah The Festival of Lights
[14:14] Yenta Bernheim: (I am Cutting and pasting so heh )
[14:14] Skye McLeod: :-)
[14:15] Yenta Bernheim: More than twenty-one centuries ago, the Holy Land was ruled by the Seleucids (Syrian-Greeks), who sought to forcefully Hellenize the people of Israel. Against all odds, a small band of faithful Jews defeated one of the mightiest armies on earth, drove the Greeks from the land, reclaimed the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and rededicated it to the service of G-d.
[14:15] Yenta Bernheim: When they sought to light the Temple's menorah (the seven branched candelabrum), they found only a single cruse of olive oil that had escaped contamination by the Greeks; miraculously, the one-day supply burned for eight days, until new oil could be prepared under conditions of ritual purity.
[14:15] Yenta Bernheim: To commemorate and publicize these miracles, the sages instituted the festival of Chanukah. At the heart of the festival is the nightly menorah (candelabrum) lighting: a single flame on the first night, two on the second evening, and so on till the eighth night of Chanukah, when all eight lights are kindled.
[14:16] Jimmy Branagh: ((Little slower ;) ))
[14:16] Yenta Bernheim: On Chanukah we also add the Hallel and Al HaNissim in our daily prayers to offer praise and thanksgiving to G-d for "delivering the strong into the hands of the weak, the many into the hands of the few... the wicked into the hands of the righteous."
[14:16] Yenta Bernheim: OH
[14:16] Yenta Bernheim: sorry
[14:16] Yenta Bernheim: my typist is a speedy one
[14:16] Skye McLeod: smiles
[14:16] Jimmy Branagh: ((NP :) ))
[14:16] Ceejay Writer: No worries! We learn by doing!
[14:17] Yenta Bernheim smoothes her skirts and pats her hair
[14:17] Walter Schnogginstein smiles an encouraging smile.
[14:17] Skye McLeod: loves Yenta
[14:17] Yenta Bernheim: Shall I continue?
[14:17] Skye McLeod: Please!
[14:17] Jimmy Branagh: Yes please!
[14:17] Yenta Bernheim: Chanukah customs include eating foods fried in oil -- latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiot (doughnuts); playing with the dreidel (a spinning top on which are inscribed the Hebrew letters nun, gimmel, hei and shin, an acronym for Nes Gadol Hayah Sham, "a great miracle happened there"); and the giving of Chanukah gelt, gifts of money, to children
[14:18] Skye McLeod: ah!
[14:18] Skye McLeod: I forgot that!
[14:18] Tepic Harlequin: oh!
[14:18] Yenta Bernheim: All over the world no matter where the Chanukah table is basically the same
[14:18] Artemiss Luminos: latkes are lovely, by the way :-)
[14:19] Jimmy Branagh: Mmmm, tasty!
[14:19] Yenta Bernheim: Fried foods are the main staple
[14:19] Solace Fairlady: We all love latkes, not a little but a lot
[14:19] Skye McLeod: Love latkes!
[14:19] Baron Klaus Wulfenbach smiles
[14:19] Yenta Bernheim: like yes Latkas with Sour Cream and Apple sauce ...lots of chives and onion
[14:19] Walter Schnogginstein feels his stomach growl.
[14:19] Ceejay WriterCeejay Writer licks lips
[14:20] Yenta Bernheim: I meant to add recipes from my family in your gifts I wll be giving out later
[14:20] Yenta Bernheim: but if you im me after (please not now) I'll send
[14:20] Baron Klaus Wulfenbach: Very nice.
[14:20] Yenta Bernheim: I gave you the History for the people but I would like to share a personal side
[14:21] Artemiss Luminos: :-)
[14:21] June Forsythe nods, indeed
[14:21] Ceejay Writer: (will IM later, happily)
[14:21] Artemiss Luminos: please do Lady Yenta :-)
[14:21] Skye McLeod: yes!
[14:21] Yenta Bernheim: When I was a little girl especially, this was a time for Family ...so many jews were lost in the Holocaust (over 6 million)
[14:22] Yenta Bernheim: So, for Jews making family multiply is important
[14:22] Walter Schnogginstein grins.
[14:22] Yenta Bernheim: family is not just those born to us
[14:22] Yenta Bernheim: it's community too
[14:23] Bodhisatva Paperclip nods
[14:23] Skye McLeod: Indeed!
[14:23] Artemiss Luminos: so true
[14:23] Yenta Bernheim: The lesson learned with the war with the Maccabees and Greeks centered around persecution for who you are
[14:23] Yenta Bernheim: In light of that message we are all Jews
[14:24] Artemiss Luminos: oh yes, so so true
[14:24] Jimmy Branagh smiles
[14:24] Yenta Bernheim: We live in such good times ...the Miracle of the lights is needed as much now as them
[14:24] Yenta Bernheim: then
[14:24] Yenta Bernheim: Diversity and Tolerance
[14:24] Yenta Bernheim: Be who you are and be proud
[14:25] Yenta Bernheim: My family would sit on the first night
[14:25] Ceejay Writer: Such good sentiments.
[14:25] Yenta Bernheim: The matriarch would like the first candle
[14:25] Yenta Bernheim: and I had my little menorah
[14:25] Yenta Bernheim: and I would light mine
[14:25] Skye McLeod: smiles, visualizing this
[14:25] June Forsythe: aww!
[14:25] Yenta Bernheim: after the blessing
[14:25] Artemiss Luminos: :-)))
[14:26] Yenta Bernheim: we would share bread....Challah
[14:26] Skye McLeod: Challah is also so very delicious!
[14:26] Blackberry Harvey: Best... bread... ever
[14:26] Yenta Bernheim: and then we basically made feast
[14:26] Artemiss Luminos: yes! :-)
[14:26] Baron Klaus Wulfenbach chuckles
[14:26] Bodhisatva Paperclip can always endorse a good feast
[14:27] Yenta Bernheim: I will share with you now the prayers of the lighting
[14:27] Solace Fairlady: A good shared meal is at the heart of many joyous celebrations
[14:27] Yenta Bernheim: Before kindling the Chanukah lights on the first night of Chanukah, Tuesday, December 20, 2011, (or if you're kindling the Chanukah lights for the first time this year) recite all three blessings. On every subsequent night only the first two are recited.
[14:27] Tepic Harlequin carefully sidles out, it being way past his bedtime...
[14:27] Solace Fairlady whipsers dream well M Tepic!
[14:27] Yenta Bernheim: Recited only on the first night (or the first time lighting this Chanukah):
1. Ba-ruch A-tah Ado-nai E-lo-he-nu Me-lech ha-olam a-sher ki-de-sha-nu be-mitz-vo-tav ve-tzi-va-nu le-had-lik ner Cha-nu-kah.
[14:28] Yenta Bernheim: Translation:
