Season of Dedication
This winter we celebrated Chanukah, not in the modern sense with gifts, but in remembrance of the amazing miracles Yahweh did for our forefathers. What a blessed time!
Then Judas and his brothers and all the assembly of Israel determined that every year at that season the days of dedication of the altar should be observed with gladness and joy for eight days, beginning with the twenty-fifth day of the month of Chislev. —1 Maccabees 4:59
