Happy Chanukah!

Judas Maccabeas was always ready for a fight but the following is a bit too much. It seems ‘tis the season to be jolly; except in Long Beach.

I saw the current height of the tree vs. the Menorah and lo and behold it is no longer a tie, the tree seems to be a lot taller.

Of course on my latest visit to Prague, I saw that the Alte Neu Shul is a lot smaller then all the churches in town. To make up for that, the shul begins a couple of meters below ground to give the interior a ‘taller’ look.

Well it now 'looks' like that time stands still for no man – not even during the holiday season.

As the ‘great’ Rodney King once said “Why can’t we all just get along?”

I guess it’s because we just can’t.
