Chanukah is around the corner! This Sunday 02/12/18, after sunset, we will light the first candle of Chanukah (using the Shamash candle). The next day, we will light 2 candles until the eighth night where we will light 8 candles.

You will notice that every day, we need to light one more candle. If we lit one candle of the first night, we are ok. But if we light again one candle on the second night, it will not be enough. We need to add every day something more and be better than the previous day.

There was once a man who told the Rebbe that he wants to become a Chasid but it seems to him that it will be very difficult to make such a big change in his lifestyle. The Rebbe answered that a Chasid is any person that tries every day to surpass the previous one and become better.

Let’s apply this message of Chanukah to our lives. Every evening, before we fall asleep, let’s take 2 minutes to think: “How was my day? What good have I done today and what should I improve? How can I make tomorrow better than today?”

Με αυτόν τον τρόπο ακόμα και αν τα βήματα μας είναι μικρά, θα καταφέρουμε να φτάσουμε μακριά και θα επιτύχουμε να γίνουμε καλύτεροι άνθρωποι από ότι είμαστε τώρα.

In this way, even if the steps are small, we will manage to go very far and be better people than we are now.

Shabbat Shalom and Chanukah Sameach!
