Miracles apparently were plentiful in the early development of Judaism, yet seem to have faded with time. Were the events of Hanukkah the last miracles in Jewish history? Did God retire from miracle-making when those initial Hanukkah lights were extinguished more than two millennia ago? Hanukkah represents a critical juncture in Jewish thinking, as it may constitute the last residue of God’s miraculous intervention in history. Please join congregant Marc Ashley via Zoom for an illuminating discussion (perfect for the seventh day of the holiday!) of Hanukkah’s place in the miraculous trajectory of Jewish history.
