In a few hours, the sun will go down here on the West Coast, and we'll begin our eight-night Festival of Lights. (For the Gentiles in the audience, this darn holiday is all over the secular map, because it falls on the 25th day of the month of Kislev, in an ancient Jewish calendar that was never "standardized" with a leap year correction). So here it is, Dec. 4, and we've managed to rip down all the Turkey decorations and get our dreidels on the walls, and shop for and wrap presents for 3 kids x 8 nights. You do the math. I'm too exhausted.

Jewish Friends with Diabetes
Nechama Cohen's EnLITEned Kosher Cooking book
Adam Chandler's Chanukkah Song (8 Craaazy Nights :)
