During Chanukah, we remember a time of miracles; of light shining through horror, even when it feels impossible. On that first night, our ancestors lit their menorah, not knowing what would happen the next night. And then the impossible happened, again and again.

This Chanukah, we come together to create light, say that every life is sacred, and remain grounded in humanity, even in the face of all the violence and despair. Fight for a future of freedom and safety for Palestinians, Israelis, and all people.

We need a ceasefire now, an end to the siege on Gaza, freedom for all being held captive, and a rededication to equality, justice, and lasting peace for everyone.

Join IfNotNow Chicago to light Chanukah candles, mourn for the dead, and rededicate ourselves to fighting like hell for the living.
