New Zealand Israeli Embassy Chanukah function

Very much enjoyed the Chanukah function put on by the Israeli Embassy in Wellington.  It was a joint function between the Orthodox and Progressive communities.  Whilst I have my own views on practice, it is great that the communities can work together.  Not to say that everything is perfect, as the Wellington community is only a shadow of what it once was.

We sort of gate crashed the function, but the candle lighting was beautiful, and it was good to see a lot of old faces, lots of young Israeli travellers, and a lot of children.
