Happy Hanukah to those who celebrate!

A story of perseverance and determination in the face of fascism.

1932. Kiel, Germany. Rabbi Dr. Akiva Posner and his wife Rachel displayed their Hanukah menorah in the window of their home, directly across from the Nazi headquarters.

And, on the back of the photo Rachel inscribed…

“Chanukah, 5692. ‘Judea dies’, thus says the banner. ‘Judea will live forever’, thus respond the lights”.

Thanks, Simona Shifra Citron for this photo and story.

Happy Hanukah to all who celebrate.

חג שמח !
