Here's some feedback on the "Eight Flames" daily readings:
"The Eight Flames was truly inspirational. It sparked the feeling that the flames of the Menorah could ignite the potential within all of us for warmth & unity in our homes, friendships & in our communities" Barbara Ashkenas
"The Eight Flames emails over Chanukah were wonderful gifts from Rabbi Cohen. Each edition was thought provoking & inspiring. Our lives are always busy & can often take us in many directions. Reading these emails enable us to pause & reflect in order to further appreciate & reconnect to our Jewish heritage"
