Today while sitting outside with my Life and Leisure class, an Israeli student walks up to us and gave us a FULL box of sufgonyot (doughnuts for Hanukkah). It was SO nice! My friend Eden had just complained that she was so hungry and this girl with the doughnuts was a miracle because she allowed Eden to feed her hunger.

Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah and miracles are what Hanukah is all about. The oil that lasted 8 days was a miracle. Hanukkah is a time to talk about and spread your miracle stories.

In Dollars for Learning we went around and told personal miracle stories. One girl spoke about how her brother’s baby was in daycare at the World Trade Center on 9/11 and how he found his son (alive and well), and another girl spoke about how she became really ill and died on the table and is now 100% healthy! People spoke about accidents and silly things too.

I told a 3-part miracle story. The first part of my story is that I was in a car accident last year and was perfectly fine. The second part is about how my dad got in a car accident last year during the winter (flipped his car) and had nothing but a scratch on his hand, and the third part is how my grandparents were in a car accident last year and thank goodness, were ok in the end! These are miracles to me.

What is your miracle?

Happy Hanukkah!
