Hanukkah - The Festival of Lights


Use Google Translate for your language

A Universal Message

Hanukkah (On date 25 Kislev, 5.770 - hebrew calendar) This year (2009), the first candle is lit on December 11 - duration 8 days, contains a universal message for all people of all faiths - a message of freedom, the victory of good over evil, light over darkness. The symbol of the party, an eight-armed candelabra, acquired special significance for the Jewish people during the revolt against religious coercion of the ancient Greeks, about 2,200 years ago. This chandelier, in fact, represents much more than just a religious symbol. It symbolizes the freedom of expression and thus indicates the diversity and pluralism as important in our society. Giant chandeliers light up in public places proclaiming the universal message of religious freedom, as has been done in hundreds of cities around the world.

Adelle,

é uma honra para mim você ter me escolhido para ser sua amiga.
É com muito prazer que te aceitei! Mas estou curiosa. De onde você é? Qual país, cidade ou qual a sua descendencia?
Um grande abraço

RAQUEL BOUCHARDET
