Courage is … women.
Happy first day of the month of the Jewish month of Kislev whose theme for me is Courage. This incredible month contains the holiday of Chanukah which has the powerful message that the eternal power of light always conquers darkness. One story from Chanukah entails the courage of Yehudit. She snuck into the enemy’s camp and killed the cruel Syrian – Greek general (known for being merciless when he captured men, women and children), turning the tide of the war in favor of the small Jewish army. Women are incredibly brave in defending their loved ones.
