Tis the season for giving gifts. Hanukkah has just passed and Christmas is coming up. We are now bombarded by retailers to buy all sorts of gifts: large screen tv's, cars with bows, and every electronic device you can imagine. If one reflects for a moment, these gift giving Celebrations are based on very simple gifts. The Gift of Hanukkah is Light and The Gift of Christmas is a Child. As we witness great horrible tragedies that are unimaginable in our society, let us remember these simple gifts originally gave people HOPE in DARK TIMES. May we remember this when we give "THE GIFT".
