Hannukah tells us that we can hope against all reason and sometimes, we will prevail. Sometimes, the mighty will fall before the weak, and sometimes, just a little bit of fuel will get us through the darkest night – or even eight of them, if need be.
Grateful thanks to sculptor Ed Benavente, the artist behind the Bicycle Menorah. In 2014, Rabbi Brent Spodek presented a maquette of the menorah at the White House’s Hannukah celebration.
