This was the closest I could get to a menorah in the hospital. Benjy had fun putting it up on the window of his room. Tonight, Lars, Saskia, Benjy and I are going to our favorite delicatessen, Zaftig's, to celebrate Hanukkah and a performance Saskia is giving at the conservatory (unfortunately just for her classmates and faculty, not parents). Benjy has a three-hour pass to the outside world and we are going to make the most of it.
This year Hanukkah will be a little bit sad. But we are grateful that our family is intact, even if slightly scattered at the moment.
Happy Hanukkah to those of my Readers and friends who celebrate it!
