The Message of Chanukah
20th of Kislev, 5732 
I am in receipt of your letter of the 22nd of Cheshvan, and may G-d
grant that you should have good news to report in all the matters about
which you write.
Now that we are in the days between the 19th of Kislev and Chanukah, the
history and significance of which are surely known to you, may each and
every one of us be inspired to intensify the efforts to spread the
fountains, both the fountains of Torah in general and the fountains of
Pnimius HaTorah [the inner dimension of Torah] in particular, in a
Indeed, the Mitzvah of the Chanukah lights brings us vividly the three
fundamental aspects of such activity:
(a) to spread the light of the Torah and Mitzvos in a growing measure
from day to day, as indicated by the addition of a candle each
succeeding night of Chanukah;
(b) to do so not only within one's own home, but to spread it also
"outside," as indicated by the fact that the original place of the
Chanukah lights is "at the entrance of his home, outside;"
(c) when it is dark outside, one must not be discouraged, and that is
precisely the time to start kindling the lights - as the Chanukah
candles have to be kindled after sunset.
Wishing you and yours a bright and inspiring Chanukah.
