Hanukkah Comes to an End

Saturday, the final night of the Festival of Lights.

Here's hoping you and yours had a wonderful Festival of Lights.

Rabbi Shalom Lubin, director of Chabad of SE Morris County, which , said the Jewish holiday is especially poignant after Superstorm Sandy left many people figuratively and literally in the dark.

The eight-day Festival of Lights, which ended Sunday, reminds residents that "the light within our hearts should light our surroundings" and "a little bit of light can go a long way," Lubin said.

Hanukkah, which commemorates the Maccabees' rededication of the Holy Temple after their victory over the Syrians, during which one day’s supply of oil for the temple menorah miraculously lasted eight full days, has a "universal message of light, hope and religious freedom," Lubin said.
