The festival of lights

December 16, 2011
What is Hanukkah? What does it have to do with the coming of the Messiah and what is the significance of light for this Jewish feast day? How does Hanukkah help us understand our own faith tradition? These are just some of the questions that Pedro asks this week on Perspectives: the Weekly Edition. Joining him is Fr. Thomas Rosica, CEO of Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation, and Rabbi Aaron Flanzraich, Senior Rabbi of Beth Sholom Synagogue, as they discuss the feast of Hanukkah.  That's tonight on Perspectives Weekly at 7 and 11 pm ET / 8 pm PT. In the meantime, take part in the discussion on Facebook.
