Sincerely,
John

\ Jokes For Chanukah
My mother once gave me two sweaters for Hanukkah. The next time we visited, I made sure to wear one. As we entered her home, instead of the expected smile, she said, "What�s the matter? You didn�t like the other one?"

SAT. Dec. 8 Events

Hanukkah begins at sunset on Saturday December 8, 2012 and ends at sunset on Sunday December 16, 2012.

We have focused on the miracle-thing and I think we often overlook the message of Hanukkah. To me, the core of the holiday is the cleaning of the temple--- The accomplishment was in restoring the temple to the purpose for which it was built. Now think of the temple as a symbol. Perhaps it represents my life. The world has tried to use me for its own (perhaps good, but none-the-less extrinsic) purposes. But now I can rededicate myself to my own original purpose. - Ralph Levy, "Hanukkah - Another View"

Rudi, the rabbi, was called upon to help solve the problem. He said, "Don�t worry, you can substitute matzo meal for the flour and the latkes will be just as delicious!"
Shela looked to her husband and said, "Mortey---you think it'll work?" and Mortey said, "Of course! Everybody knows -------
Rudolph, the Rab, knows grain dear!"
