The Chanukah Presence

The current establishment of Chanukah presents really ticks me off and I’ll tell you why. Judaism purports to have its origins in first the private and then the public revelation of God to humans, and it has been changing with the times ever since.

Now, that’s not to say that it changes like Christianity or Islam, but it definitely changes.  We used to practice animal sacrifice and violators of the Sabbath were excommunicated if not executed. In modern times, the vast majority of those who identify with Judaism don’t observe the Sabbath, and if they do, it’s in an novel sense, because they’re observing other Jews wearing funny fringed blankets walking to and from synagogue while they’re in their cars heading to the mall or the beach.
