Rabbi Morris J. Allen showed me their Beth Jacob Congregation Synagogue and lit the first of eight candles of the Menorah. Beth Jacob is the only synagogue in Dakota County located in Mendota Heights, an adjacent suburb to Eagan.
Hanukah began after sundown, Wednesday night, December 1 and lasts until Thursday, December 9 with the 8th candle to be lit on the night of December 8.
Happy Hanukah to all the Jewish people near and far!
I was bit by a foreign travel bug after my sophomore year in high school. I haven't found a cure for it, nor do I plan to. I visited India for 5 weeks in early 2009 and Europe in July 2009. My family and I spent 1 month in Sweden, Norway and Denmark in July 2010. In January 2012, I went to the foothills of the Himalayan mountains and a wedding in Jaipur, India. Then in May 2012, I returned to Japan and Bangkok, Thailand. My family and I spent 3 weeks in Paris, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Germany in August 2012.
