Rosh Chodesh Kislev

Rosh Chodesh Kislev

Cold and dark
the month of Kislev
comes in

Ending Cheshvan
ushering in the month of
festive
lights

Kislev...from kesel
...confidence...
confidence that the light
will come
confidence that the dark
will not take over

Kislev...the month of dreams
Vayetze
Vayeshev
Miketz
most of
the Torah's dreamers
visit during this month.

We dream and hope
we live and love
we celebrate
even in the darkest days
of our calendar.

May this month bring peace and light and hope and dreams and love.
Chodesh tov!
