To all our friends, met and yet to meet, who are of the tribe, greetings and may you all enjoy time with family during Hanukkah.

As most of us have by now swept up the somewhat equivalent of Thanksgiving

, where family and friends also gather, albeit for one day of contemplation, it is time to ruminate on our many blessings

, which are being sorely taxed of late.

Looking about, I still see a land that provides plenty for all who labor and by and large is far easier to live in than most other lands. Yes humans can be abject fools at times but then get to enjoy (more like suffer) the poor choices made. But in America, this is not an end all, we are not born into castes or stratified class, we have opportunity to change our fortunes if we make the effort.

I pray every one of you that visits here continues with the strength and will to overcome temporary setbacks; what we are currently being subject to is temporary, there will come a reckoning for those who cause pain unto others on such a vast scale.
