Chappy
Chanukah!

T

he annual Jewish News
Chanukah Art Contest is a
delightful way
to begin the
Chanukah holiday. We
always look forward to
seeing the work of hun-
dreds of talented young
artists and we work dili-
gently to select a repre-
sentative sampling of the
great art for this Chanukah issue. You
can find the best of the best on the cover
_ of this issue and beginning on page 64
inside.
One of our
favorite . activities
throughout the
year is working .
with this con-
test. It isn't only
Chanukah Art
fun for the com-
munity. There
Contest Winners
are several JN
staffers who
have volunteered
for many years to help select the winning
artists. This year's judges included
Dharlene Norris, Esther Tschirhart, Erin
Huf, Alison Blau and Alex Lumelsky.
It is always a thrill to inform the win-
ners and their families that they have
been selected, and to interview the
grand-prize winner whose work appears
on the cover of the Jewish News. This
year's winner, 10-year-old Rena Molnar
of West Bloomfield, is no exception. A
bright young lady who loves to draw,
Rena was surprised to learn that she had
won. She thought several of her class-
mates at Congregation Shir Tikvah in
Troy had created better entries. But our
judges disagree.
We hope the beautiful art and bright
faces displayed in this issue from
throughout metropolitan Detroit — and
beyond — will begin your holiday with a
smile. -

A Candle For Peace

ne of the miracles of the modern State of Israel, born 54'/2 years
ago in the shadows of the Holocaust, is its survival against con-
stant aggression.
With Chanukah, the Festival of Lights, beginning tonight, let
each of us light a candle not only to commemorate the Jewish rededica-
tion of the Temple in 165 BCE after the Assyrian-Greeks defiled the sanc-
tuary, but also secure the future of Israel.
May the collective candlepower burn away the lies, hatred and terror
thrust upon Israelis by Islamic extremists who won't rest until the Jewish
homeland is destroyed.
As American Jews, we must never let down our guard on behalf of our
Israeli brethren. Please have them in your hearts as you commemorate the
holiday that marks our people's fight for religious freedom.
Shabbat shalom and Chanukah sameiach!
