Today we will light the first candle of Hanukkah,
a holiday that commemorates the victory of light over darkness.
We hope that this will help light Gilad’s way home
and we will witness the miracle of his release soon.
Fill the Heart with the oil of love.
Place in it the wick of single-pointed mind.
Light it with the Knowledge of Truth and remove
the darkness of ignorance around you.
Just as one lamp can light many lamps let each
Youth kindle this Light in many hearts.
