On Hanukkah and the season of giving, it can be easy to forget to give to yourself this time of year. That’s why we have created these Hanukkah Resources and our Mental Health Menorah or “Hanukkiah” to help you stay grounded and healthy, build resilience, and avoid burnout this holiday season.

Donate to our end-of-year Hanukkah Fundraiser and add your light to ours this season!

The proper response, as Hanukkah teaches, is not to curse the darkness but to light a candle. — Irving Greenberg

Build your own Mental Health Menorah, and channel the resilience of the Maccabees into your Hanukkah experience, or explore the concept of burnout and what we can do to naturally keep our flames burning longer. We will even have some suggested Menorah lighting rituals for relaxation and calmness!

Explore the Jewish value of leadership as portrayed by the Shamash of the Menorah, learn the many ways you can perform self-care on Hanukkah during the season of giving, and take some time for yourself and check out our Hanukkah coloring page.

Remember the miracles and people in your life that you are grateful for with our Hanukkah and Gratitude resource. We also have one version for kids and another for teens.
