U Żydów święto: Tu bi-Szwat

W 2024 roku - 25 stycznia.
"Gdy przyjdziecie do ziemi Izraela i będziecie sadzić wszelkie drzewo rodzące jadalny owoc, będzie wam ten owoc wzbroniony – przez trzy lata będzie wam wzbroniony i jedzony nie będzie. A w czwartym roku wszelki jego owoc będzie święty i jedzony tylko w Jerozolimie, na chwałę Boga. A w piątym roku możecie jeść jego owoc. Przestrzegaj tego prawa żeby zwiększyć swój plon. Ja Bóg, jestem waszym Bogiem" (Księga Kapłańska, Kedoszim, 19:23–25).

A collective broken heart

We came together at the Western Wall in prayer and tears, and pierced the heavens. May that unity see us through this excruciating time
The above remarks were first said following the large prayer gathering at the Western Wall Plaza, on the evening of Rosh Chodesh Shevat.

U Żydów Chanuka - początek o zmierzchu 7 XII 2023, do zmierzchu 15 XII

Nadchodzące święto: Chanuka - 24 Kislew - 2 Tewet 5783 (07-15.12.2023).
Czy Chanuka zdarzyła się wiele lat temu? Czy może dzieje się teraz? Czy był kiedyś czas żeby się nie działa? Opowieść o małej świeczce odganiającej potwora przeraźliwej ciemności jest ciągle żywa wewnątrz każdego z nas, i w świecie otaczającym nas.

Yossi Klein Halevi - "The lonely people of history"

Perhaps the most enduring wound for Jews from the Holocaust is the memory of aloneness. For 12 long years, the international community scarcely intervened as Nazi persecution gradually turned to extermination. Even as we established a sovereign state and created thriving communities in a free diaspora, there remained a lingering anxiety that the post-Holocaust era of Jewish acceptance was an aberration and that someday we would once again be alone.
