No matter how you celebrate or spell (C)Hanu(k)ka(h), whether you join us on campus for tonight’s candle lighting or stand with us in spirit from afar, we wish all of our Spiders a Hanukkah filled with light, love, and joy!

For the next eight nights, may we all increase holiness, may we tend to our inner sparks, and may we dedicate ourselves to seeing and revealing the light in others regardless of how dark things may appear. Because miracles aren’t just an ancient thing, they continue to surround us every moment of every day. πŸ’™πŸ•ŽπŸ•·οΈ
