(I was fortunate in visiting various ethnic and faith communities within Israel and Palestine during the festival of Chanukah/Hanukkah with my Mother’s close friend Sara Elkes (brother Joel) during a Miriam and Elkhanan Elkes Association for Inter-Community Understanding trip. A memorable visit on so many levels. Madria Sophia)
