Kislev – First Fruit Celebration

This week the congregation at GZI celebrated First Fruits and the Hebrew month of Kislev. This new month of Kislev is the month that we enter the beginning of Hanukkah, an eight-day celebration that commemorates the rededication of the Temple. During the Feast we celebrate that the oil and light never go out! This is also a month of dreams, as well as the month linked with the tribe of Benjamin.

We give thanks for the bountiful blessings we receive every day of the month from the Lord.DSC01185
