Chanukah Oh(WU) Chanukah

The bad news: The OWU Men’s Soccer screening party stole the thunder from our Chanukah party this evening.

The good news: The team is advancing to the final round of competition in the Division Three National Finals.

The other good news: Those of us who were in attendance had a great time catching up in the kitchen, making and eating some damn good latkes, and listening to some rocking tunes on Pandora’s Klezmer Conservatory Band’s holiday channel (Dr. Elias’s brother-in-law is a founding member of the KCB).

 

In the tradition of OWU Hillel, we read a story to mark the holiday and get us thinking about what it’s all about.  The Dog Tag Dilemma is a perfect story for Chanukah, a story about embracing one’s Jewish identity when circumstances suggest it would be easier to blend in with the crowd.  If you’re looking for a way to reconnect with the spirit of the holiday, check it out.

As we move through Chanukah, from 2011 to 2012, consider how you will rededicate yourself to Judaism, and OWUHillel.  We’ll be selecting new board members in January and we could use a few good folks to lead us.
