Your Best Chanukah Picture of The Holiday!

I'd like to challenge/invite you to participate in this meme.  I'll list a few bloggers at the end of the post, but everyone who wants can/should join in.  Just link, post and spread the word!

Chanukah is probably the most photogenic of all Jewish holidays.  It has the advantage of not being burdened by any restrictions, and besides lighting the Chanukiya, Chanukah Menorah,  adding the "Al HaNissim,"  "About the Miracles" to some prayers and saying the "Hallel," "Praise," we can go about our usual daily routine.  In Israel the kids are off from school making it both a great family time and complicated logistics when neither parent is a school teacher.  Most people find themselves taking lots of pictures, because unlike the Passover seder, it's permitted.

Now, about my best Chanukah Picture from this year...
Like most great pictures, this wasn't planned at all.  I was rushing down to a neighbor's Bat Mitzvah when I spied this great scene.




I was afraid that the cat would flee before I finished shooting, but it was so comfortable that it didn't move.

I hope that Seraphic Secret, Ricki's Mom, Leora, Ilana-Davita, RivkA, Elder of Zyon, Isramom, Tikkun Olam, Sharon's VoicesFrum Satire and Our Shiputzim will participate in this meme.  And of course, anyone else who wants to.

Oops: you spelled my blog title incorrectly. It should be "TiKKun Olam," with 2 "T"s! (that other one is a bleeding heart liberal, I think...!)

Ok, Batya--I finally did it. My Chanukah pics are here.
Linked you, too--and thanks for fixing my blog title.
(Btw-you still have the best pic of all, of that cat with it's eyes lit up like chanukah candles!)

Batya said...

Thanks darling.
I may look funny with a camera strapped to my waist, but the cat wouldn't have waited for me to run home first.
