Dec. 11, 1909: “The Hanukkah teaches us to be true to our colors as a religious entity; to shield, protect and safeguard our spiritual heritage for ourselves and for our children, and not to be blinded by the false light of a pseudo-civilization that seeks its chief glory in unbelief; in doubt and denial; in irreverence and superciliousness. It admonishes us to be interested in and devoted to the improvement of society, civic purity and efficiency,” Rabbi S. Hecht says.
