On Sunday 2nd December, Gail, Laura and Tom from the St Philip's Centre attended the Leicester Hebrew Congregation Community Chanukah Celebration at Leicester's Town Hall. As well as hearing from the children who attend the Orthodox Synagogue, and a song from 8th Day, challenging us to "Give all you got" we also heard an inspiring talk from Rebbetzin Rivkie Pink (pictured above). She reminded us that it is in times of darkness that we most need the light, and that the message of Chanukah is that the optimism of light in the face of overwhelming odds does often triumph. We should continue to light the candles of hope and optimism for the future, even in the face of dark and difficult times.
