My first Chanukah as a Jew

My first Chanukah as a Jew

So here it is, our menorah, in all of its glory. Yes, those are birthday candles. This isn’t my first time celebrating Chanukah. I lit the menorah last year while my husband (fianc√© at the time) was deployed. This year is special. It is my first Chanukah as a Jewish woman. I even attended menorah lightings at Fort Benning. I truly feel like I am a part of the Jewish community. I feel very blessed this holiday season, and wish the same for everyone, no matter how they celebrate. Happy Chanukah!
