Light, Might, and Beyond: Chanukah and Meaning-Making in 2023
Chanukah has been called “a type of holy Rorschach test.” The story and rituals of this holiday have many different meanings depending on how you look at them. Join dynamic Jewish educator Abby Eisenberg to explore the development of Chanukah and how its various messages have evolved over time. Analyze historical, religious, and liturgical texts and, in doing so, attempt to determine if there is one dominant theme of the holiday or if Chanukah can truly be based on multiple – perhaps conflicting – themes. We’ll aim to glean meaning that resonates with each of us, for the holiday, for this year, and beyond.
