Prayer for Wednesday (Chanukah)

Today is the first full day of Chanukah, or Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights.

Haneirot Halalu

We kindle these lights [to commemorate] the saving acts, miracles and wonders which You have performed for our forefathers, in those days at this time, through Your holy priests. Throughout the eight days of Chanukah, these lights are sacred, and we are not permitted to make use of them, but only to look at them, in order to offer thanks and praise to Your great Name for Your miracles, for Your wonders and for Your salvations.

(It is customary to recite or sing the Haneirot Halalu hymn after the Chanukah lights are kindled.)

Today’s Affirmation:

“I am grateful for all that I have.”
