The Message of Chanukah
20th of Kislev, 5732 [1961]

I am in receipt of your letter of the 22nd of Cheshvan, and may G-d grant that you should have good news to report in all the matters about which you write.

Now that we are in the days between the 19th of Kislev and Chanukah, the history and significance of which are surely known to you, may each and every one of us be inspired to intensify the efforts to spread the fountains, both the fountains of Torah in general and the fountains of Pnimius HaTorah [the inner dimension of Torah] in particular, in a growing measure.

Indeed, the Mitzvah of the Chanukah lights brings us vividly the three fundamental aspects of such activity:

(a) to spread the light of the Torah and Mitzvos in a growing measure from day to day, as indicated by the addition of a candle each succeeding night of Chanukah;

(b) to do so not only within one's own home, but to spread it also "outside," as indicated by the fact that the original place of the Chanukah lights is "at the entrance of his home, outside;"

(c) when it is dark outside, one must not be discouraged, and that is precisely the time to start kindling the lights - as the Chanukah candles have to be kindled after sunset.

Wishing you and yours a bright and inspiring Chanukah.
