Happy Hannukah Everyone!
Yesterday was the 1st night of Hanukah, and a joint candle-lighting ceremony was planned, with the women of Baltimore and the women of Ashkelon, lighting candles together by videoconference.
Everyone was very disappointed when icy road conditions and bad winter weather prevented the Baltimore women from taking part. In Ashkelon the weather is still warm and sunny so we could only try to imagine what a "real" winter feels like.
In Ashkelon there was a good turnout and the women took the opportunity to reconnect and celebrate Hannukah. Then everyone rushed to get home in time to light the candles with their families. Nicole
