Hanukkah 5732

From a true childhood story…

“We do not use the menorah like that,” Grandma said.

“But I need a little more light over here by the window so I can read,” the granddaughter countered.

“Those eight shamash are holy and not to be used for reading but for worship – besides carrying them around like that can be dangerous – so set them down and leave it be,” Grandma returned.

“I’m being careful – besides what could happen that makes them so dangerous?” the granddaughter asked as she accidentally set the drapes in the living room ablaze.

The home was a total loss.
