Irene Lieblich, "Partisans," from I.B. Singer’s "The Power of Light: Eight Stories for Hanukkah,"
at the HUC-JIR Museum in New York.

Dear Friend,

During the Festival of Lights, as we remember the miracles and wonders that have sustained our people, ensured our survival, and realized the dream of Jewish nationhood in our own time, we also recall the teaching of Zechariah 4:6: Not by might nor by power but by my Spirit, says Adonai.

We at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion have a precious task: to prepare leaders who are inspired by Judaism’s values and tradition, steeped in Judaic knowledge, and dedicated to the continuity of our heritage, who will sustain Jewish identity and build communities of meaning throughout North America, Israel, and around the world.

We thank you for your partnership in this sacred mission, and are grateful for your ongoing support. We wish you a Hanukkah blessed with joy, celebration, and peace.

Rabbi David Ellenson, President
Barbara Friedman, Chair, Board of Governors
