Eight Questions for Eight Nights

In celebration of Hanukkah, the author posted eight questions on social media for the eight nights of the holiday, using the hashtag #eightqs. These questions can be used as fodder for discussion with family and friends, before or after lighting.


First night: What is your source of light in the darkness? 

Second night: When have you been a match, igniting someone else's spark? 

Third night: When has someone else empowered you to discover your own brightness within?

Fourth night: Share a favorite Chanukah memory. What makes that particular memory stand out for you?

Fifth night: The Maccabees fought for what they believed in. What belief, idea, or value would you fight for? 

Sixth night: What does the word miracle mean to you? Did you witness any miracles this year? 

Seventh night: What is a non-material gift someone gave you this year? What is a gift that you gave to someone else?

Eighth night: What have these questions illuminated for you over the last week?
