December 12, 2020 | Hanukkah Roundtable with Steve Herzig, Lorna Simcox and Mitch Triestman

Hanukkah Roundtable

For many of us, this time of year means one thing: Christmas. But for our Jewish friends, this is Hanukkah’s time of year! It’s a special holiday full of joy and celebration. Families make memories together and remember the miracle of the oil and the rededication of the Temple. 

If you’ve never celebrated Hanukkah before, you might feel like you’ve missed out. Fortunately, we have some friends who can make you feel like you’re right there enjoying it with them! This week three Friends of Israel employees—Steve Herzig, Lorna Simcox, and Mitch Triestman—get together to reminisce about their favorite Hanukkah memories. Their stories will make you feel like you’re sitting in the living room with them, catching up and talking about the good old days of Hanukkah celebrations in years gone by. Join us for this fun roundtable discussion that will get you excited for Hanukkah!

The Search



This is the poignant, true account of a Jewish woman’s quest to find the ultimate answers about faith, God, and life after death. Once you start reading, you won’t be able to stop! A wonderful book for all who think their good deeds will get them to heaven. You will long remember Lorna’s true story and the heartwarming stops on a journey that brought this Jewish woman to undeniable truth about faith, God, and life after death.



The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.
