Happy Hanukkah from Voices & Visions!
Hanukkah commemorates a war - the last victory a Jewish army won on Israeli soil from 160 BCE until 1948, a span of over 2100 years.
But the Rabbis shifted the focus from warfare to life after the spears were laid down, when the Macabees re-entered the Temple and were greeted with the miracle of the oil.
Similarly, in this Proudly Jewish poster, Golda Meir's reflection and Chana Helen Roseberg's artwork shift the focus from warfare to the miracle of modern Israel, from bombs and guns to cotton and strawberries.
We hope this Hanukkah season is peaceful and joyful, letting in the light and the miracles.
"We hate war. We do not rejoice in victories. We rejoice when a new kind of cotton is grown, and when strawberries bloom in Israel." - Golda Meir
