I was about to light the Menorah when realized that I only had one candle left from last year, and there was nowhere in Johnstown to purchase Chanukah candles. I needed two candles to fulfill the mitzvah. Like my ancestors in the second century B.C., I was confronted with a lack of light! What to do? Resourcefully, I split the candle in half to create two candles. Miracle? I’ll let you know if the flame lasts for 8 days. 🙂
Happy Chanukah everyone.
(and yes, that is Chana on the couch in the background. and yes, I know you are supposed to light from right to left. I took this picture of the back of the menorah so Chana was in the pic.)
