Now Available on Kindle and for Paperback Pre-Order, I Am Hanukkah: A Mindfulness Journey by Ron Isaacs. This Hanukkah story was inspired by Peter Yarrow’s Hanukkah Song “Light One Candle” with the chorus “don’t let the lights go out.” “I Am Hanukkah” explores why Hanukkah was created as one of the newest of Jewish holidays and the spiritual traits that embody the holiday.

The Prophet Isaiah speaks about the Israelite mission to be “a light unto the nations.” “I am Hanukkah” is intended to take readers on a journey of visualization. The child in the story comes to realize through gazing at the Hanukkah candles that each of us is capable of bringing our own unique light into the world and spreading it to those in dark places.
