Eight Angels Came to Me On Eight Nights
Each one told a story***

On the third night --

Darkness IS Light -- God separated the light from darkness
called light day and the darkness night, and it was evening and it was morning
day one.

In the beginning, darkness and light one, a single seamless sourced good
then the challenge: subdue the dark, illumine the good.

Temple menorah lit by day to illumine the night. Hanukkah menorah
lit by night to reclaim dark. Light from darkness itself -- the source of light.

Light from the luminous essence of darkness – this the Hanukkah light.

The Temple lights seven, Hanukkah eight, seven the spiritual cycle
the seven sefirot emanated from God, all natural cycles given in seven.

Eight -- surrounding the seven, the extra measure laid around nature
The eighth lamp -- light from darkness itself -- darkness as an aspect of light.

Now stare into a candle see the flame see the darkness around the wick
see the dark candle it’s all light
all over.

The First Annual Brothers Lazaroff Hanukkah Hullabaloo featuring Brothers Lazaroff, Rabbi James Stone Goodman, Will Soll's Klezmer Conspiracy, Ben Kaplan and "The Vaad." On the corner of the stage...latkes. It was an ascendant night, so we took it into the studio. Behold the result. ... more
