The Chanukah Menorah's circle of lights brings together several ideas that I have held for some time.

The form embodies the Japanese enso form of bringing together--inclusion -- holding.

The menorah also articulates the Chanukah idea that one candle is a small thing, but one candle can light another and another....And that every free people has remained free by resisiting those who would extinguish in people the light of love, of truth.
