CHANUKAH....it is all about light. The neshomah is all about light.
But what is it about the chanukah menorah that draws a Jew so strongly?
We light in total 36 candles over the eight days of Chanukah.
Inside those lights is hidden the light that Hashem created and hid during the first six days of Creation. A light so powerful that it will only be revealed when Moshiach arrives. A light that explains the suffering all the Jewish people have endured throughout galus.
And that light is what draws every Jewish soul.
So sit and look at the lights. Those lights have power: the power to change decrees, the power to bring down blessings and the power to light up our souls
