Happy Hanukkah 2017

To all my readers of the Jewish faith, I wish each of you a Happy First Day of Hanukkah!  I’m not Jewish, nor do I have any Middle Eastern origins that I know of; but each year I try to be observant of when the eight-day “Festival of Lights” occurs.

While searching for an appropriate quote, psalm or photo for thimayim-bialik-girling-up-book-ftrs entry; I came across a video hosted by Mayim Bialik.  You may know Bialik as “Amy Farrah Fowler”, the girlfriend of “Dr. Sheldon Cooper” on the TV series, “Big Bang Theory“.  On that show, Mayim often co-hosts, along with “Sheldon, a video web series called “Fun With Flags“.  That series may have an episode about the flag of Israel, but I think I found a much more appropriate video for today.

Bialik is Jewish, a mother, an activist, an actress and a real-life Doctor of Neuroscience, as well as  teen-star of that old TV series, “Blossom“.  She also has a great website called Grok Nation. (Grok–v. To Understand something intuitively or with empathy)

The website’s community “groks out” on the topics Mayim covers.  I am now listing Grok Nation in my “Links I Like”.

So, for a quick “True or False” lesson on the holiday that Gentiles think is the Jewish Christmas–“grok” on Mayim Bialik and her explanation of Hanukkah.
