1.  HANUKKAH BEGINS TUESDAY EVENING   Hanukkah is A Hebrew word meaning “dedication” (It is used, for instance, in II Chron. 7:9 when Solomon dedicated the altar for the First Temple; it also occurs in the heading for Psalm 30, a dedication of a house).  The eight-day Jewish celebration bearing that name (it is also called the Festival of Lights) remembers the re-dedication of the “second” temple in Jerusalem after it had been recovered by the Jewish forces of Yehuda Maccabee in 164 BC.  The Syrian king Antiochus IV Epiphanes (a forerunner of the Anti-Christ, and foretold in Daniel 11:21), seeking to coerce Jews into abandoning their religion and culture for that of Greece, had issued edicts forbidding circumcision, observance of Jewish Sabbaths and feast-days.  He had defiled the Holy…

“Exalt the LORD our God, and worship towards His footstool—He is Holy… Exalt the LORD our God, and worship towards His holy hill;  For YHVH our God is holy”  (Psalm 99:5,9) Please join us in thanking the Lord for His blessings over Israel this week: *For bountiful rain fall.  Between Tuesday and Thursday Jerusalem received almost five inches of rain; the Sea of Galilee rose by over 1.7 inches (not from run-off, but from clouds positioned directly over the lake); some places in the south received as much rain in a few hours as they normally expect in over six months.  We are still within what are called the Former Rains in Israel. Although Israel has developed enough de-salinization fields to provide for its drinking water, this by no means provides…
