Hanukkah Day Two

We Should Be a Light to Others. I want others to see Yeshua(Jesus) living in my life. I want to be a reflection of His light.

 33 “People don’t light a lamp and then put it in a closet or under a basket. Rather, they place the lamp on a lampstand so that those who enter the house can see the light.

Tonight you will light two candles on the Hanukkah Menorah using the servant candle or Shamash candle when the sun goes down. The Hanukkah Menorah is usually lit by the window. Remember to put the candles in from right to left (like reading Hebrew) and them after you light the Shamash you light the others from left to right.

You  recite these two blessing before lighting the candles.

1st Blessing~Hebrew (Sepharidc/Modern Israeli): Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Ha-Olam, asher kiddeshanu b’mitzvotav, vitzivanu, lehadlik ner shel Hanukkah.

English: Blessed are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who has sanctified us with Your commandments, and has commanded us to kindle the lights of Hanukkah. 
 
2nd Blesssing~Hebrew (Sepharidc/Modern Israeli): Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Ha-Olam, she-asah nissim la-avotaynu bayamim ha-hem bazman hazeh. 
English: Blessed are you, Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who wrought miracles for our fathers in days of old, at this season.

Here are a few scriptures ideas to read the 2nd night of Hanukkah.
8 You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord, so live your life as children of light.

Philippians 2:15

15 so that you may be blameless and pure, innocent children of God surrounded by people who are crooked and corrupt. Among these people you shine like stars in the world 
14 Everything that is revealed by the light is light. Therefore it says, Wake up, sleeper![a] Get up from the dead,[b] and Christ will shine on you
