"Bright Night," Another Chanukah Video

Hat tip the Ima Bima who is expecting to be, or may already be as I blog this, a mother of four.  בשעה טובה! B'Sha'ah Tovah! May it be at the "right time."  And nice and healthy, ima and baby, nothing else matters!

The news has reported that the devestating fire in the Carmel region of Israel is officially extinguished.   Baruch Hashem, Thank G-d!  Davka, a fire during the holiday of lights...  Yes, another example of how in Israel the same things can be holy or profane. 

And for two conflicting thoughts.  The Hand of G-d is in everything, but at the same time, we humans have free will and must take responsibilities for our actions, including recognizing that each act, each word affects others, sometimes like a house of cards collapsing.  And sometimes when a mitzvah or chessed brings more...

נס גדול היה פה, לא שם
Nes gadol haya poh, lo sham
The Great Miracle Happened Here, Not There!
