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
"I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the 8 flames emails you sent over the holidays. It was a great suggestion to themes that our family could discuss after lighting the candles and making a more spiritual conenction to the holidays, rather than the material chaos it sometimes turns into. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and thoughts with our family.
Fondly, Ailene Tisser
