Chanukah and Quest 2019

“Chanukah” means dedication in Hebrew. Jewish humanist secular rabbi Binyamin Biber wrote dedication readings for each night of Chanukah.

This year’s Quest invites us to experiment with some new habits, one of which is to begin the day quietly focusing on our devotion for this day.

Inspired by the coinciding of Chanukah with the first week of Quest2019, I am drawing on Rabbi Biber’s candle lighting dedications to guide me into this  practice. Today, I am, in Biber’s words, dedicated to “helping to fill the world with love.”
