8 Nights of Hanukkah Gratitude


This Hanukkah, stop and think about eight miracles of your own. Write them down and reflect.  Hanukkah is the beloved festival of light. We celebrate by lighting candles or olive oil lamps and through prayers, songs, playing special games and eating delicious foods. The Hanukkah story, and especially the hanukkiah lights, are particularly relevant to those in recovery from mental illness or addiction. In essence, Hanukkah can be described as the triumph of spiritual light and lasting truth over darkness, emptiness and falsehood.
