Text of Rabbi Heather Borshof's address to Rodeph Torah, Hanukkah 2014

Hanukkah 2014 at Temple Rodeph Torah

Hanukkah 2014 at Temple Rodeph Torah

It is hard to believe that four years ago this Hanukah I took my commission to serve in the Army as a rabbi to the Military Jewish community and as a chaplain to every other Soldier I encounter. Four years ago I spoke about the miracle that Hanukah celebrates – not just the oil that miraculously lasted for eight days, but that a very small, determined group of people was willing to fight hard and risk everything in order to keep Judaism alive. While the Jewish people have always been a minority and have often struggled to survive, most of us have always enjoyed our freedom. And sometimes it is hard not to take for granted what we have always had.
