Nice People in NYC!? and More Chanukah Entertainment

Haveil Havalim #98 is up at Jerusalem Board Games. He's turned it into an entertaining story, too - great roundup, lots of fun. He notes that another J-Blogger, Planck's Constant, is constantly updating his Chanuka carnival. Loads of great stuff in there of all types...
  • Irina has an incredible essay on Chanukah. Read it.
  • Kasamba writes about Chanukkah in a way only she can...
  • Steg points out that our Hhanuka is actually the fourth one. Huh? He explains...
  • And finally, Scraps finds that there are some really nice people - even in New York! Maybe people are being nice for the holiday season? ;) Regardless, it's great to hear. What a nice story.
We had one party last night at my in-laws, which was also a combined siyum in memory of Serach's grandfather Dr. Abraham Luchins, who passed away one year ago today. A few more small parties over the rest of the week...!

Chanuka Sameach!! :)


  1. My brother has a teacher named Mencahem Luchins, whose grandfather passed away last year... any relation?

  2. Menachem is Serach's first cousin. Menachem is R' Dr. David Luchins' son; my father-in-law and David are brothers. Menachem and his wife missed the party. :(

  3. Happy Chanukah to you and your family from one of your goy readers!


  4. Thanks for the link, and have a great holiday! : )

  5. Thanks for the link! I figured it was only fair; I bash NYer's so much that I should make a point of telling about their good side... :-P
