Happy Hanukkah!

At this time of the year there are a number of religious and other festivals, and it’s right that – as we honour all such festivals – we honour Hanukkah, with its lovely story that can inspire us for greater hope, light, peace and tranquility.

All qualities we need to cling on to even more in these turbulent, troubled times.
