The Third Flame: Seeing the Light

James Michener writes “An age is called Dark not because the light fails to shine but because people refuse to see it.”

Yesterday morning, my daughter Elisheva, saw the light. I am so grateful.

We were getting ready for the Shippan Turkey Trot in Stamford. It was very cold. However, while I was focused on staying warm, she showed me a beautiful sight overlooking the Long Island Sound and captured this image.


When reflecting on the flames of the Chanukah, I think about the lights sparkling everywhere. They may be in a sunrise or sunset or a looking into a child’s eyes. The light never fails to shine. May the flames of tonight inspire us never to fail to see them.

Wishing everyone a Chanukah filled with light!
