Candles Burning Brightly
(Rochester, New York) – More than two thousand years ago, in the days of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, the religious life of the Jews was brought almost to a halt by the ancient Greeks. But rather than give in to the pressure to assimilate, a band of Jews who practiced their faith in secret returned to their holy city and rededicated the Temple. Their courageous act and its aftermath form the focus of Chanukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights. Mindy Ratner and Bill Morelock offer a program which explores the customs and music of the holiday. Candles Burning Brightly airs Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at 12 p.m. on Classical 91.5/FM-HD91.5-1.
