8 Days of Giving to Yourself


Self-care is a deeply Jewish ideal and can be found as early as the second chapter in the Torah. 

After completing his task of creating the world, the Torah tells us God took an entire day to be with Himself and rest when His work was complete. A core principle of Jewish tradition is to emulate God's ways, and this text teaches that recovery, rest and self-care are not only good; they are godly.

This Hanukkah, as you light the candles on the hanukkiah, be sure to look inward at the light shining inside of you, and take steps to ensure your inner flame is happy, healthy and bright.
