While I'm thinking of it, I would also like to share a prayer for travelers I came across, as we all get ready to travel to see family and friends for the holidays. Or in the case of my cousin, you are getting ready to take the trip of a lifetime to Israel!
May God direct your steps toward tranquility and keep you from the hands of every foe.
May you be safe from all misfortune on this earth.
May God grant you mercy in his eyes and in the eyes of all who see you.
Happy Hanukkah to those of you who celebrate it, and to everyone else, may you experience all the wonder and miracles of this happy season!
