Lights, Camera, Hanukkah

The mission and vision of the Pop Elul Project continues throughout the Hanukkah season. I am excited to share that the Hollywood Journal has asked me to write a Hanukkah column for their “Holy Wood” section. The column, “Lights, Camera, Hanukkah,” focuses on the gifts of Hanukkah.

Instead of focusing on the material gifts that one gives and receives, “Lights, Camera, Hanukkah” magnifies the true gifts of the holiday that we are grateful. With each night of Hanukkah, we light another candle on the Menorah, and celebrate another gift.  Like the Pop Elul Project, this also shares the messages of our faith and tradition through the lens of Pop Culture. I invite you to check out the first night’s gift: The gift of light in the darkness, with a little help from Thor: The Dark World and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You can view it on the Hollywood Journal’s website here. Check back each night of Hanukkah for an additional gift.  I’d love to hear your thoughts.
