The Isaacs in New York City

We're having a great time in THE BIG APPLE ..... My old stomping ground! I'm sad at times and I've shed a few tears. This is the first time I've been back since my Mom passed away. An empty feeling hits my heart. But I'm grateful for all the memories and a sweet JEWISH family and my upbringing and my heritage. Visiting the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is so emotional for me. This is where my parents and I came through in 1949, to a land of FREEDOM and a new life. I'm proud to be an American . YES... Even if our country is not perfect, it's still the best place in the world to call home! 

So we did all that yesterday, went to ground Zero, then shopped, ate pizza, Chinese food and a hot dog from the Sabret street vendor and topped the night off with a fantastic show in Astor Place Theater with The Blue Man Group!!! Whew!!!
We walked a lot, took the subway and a cab! So today we plan The Museum of Natural History and off to Brooklyn to the Nets game where my 3 talented and amazing kids will sing the National Anthem ( probably in front of 20,000 people)..I just had to be a JEWISH Mom in that statement. Anyhow. Keep us in your prayers. We will post photos tonight too.

Blessings, Lily

Happy Hanukkah!



Many of our friends and fans are very interested in our Jewish traditions. We've been asked many times "what are these holidays about? And do we still celebrate them?" All of the traditional Jewish holidays have very significant meanings . We do celebrate Hanukkah and Passover as best we can. These are two of the most popular holidays. Of course there are many, such as, Sukkoth,Yom Kippur and Rash Hashanah that we always acknowledge. We are proud of our heritage and always feel good to pass these traditions on to our children, and generations to come.
Here is the meaning of Hanukkah:
The word Hanukkah means dedication! This holiday commemorates the rededication of the holy temple in Jerusalem following the Jewish victory over the Syrian-Greek army. This took place in 165 B.C.E.
The Greek Emperor Antiochus ordered all the Jews to worship Greek gods. The Jewish people resisted. They only worshipped the true God , Jehovah. This Jewish resistance force was later known as the "Maccabees."  When the Maccabees regained control of the temple in Jerusalem, they saw that the temple had been used by the Greeks to worship foreign gods and sacrificing swine. At the side of this, they decided to purify the temple by burning ritual oil for eight days, which was the custom at the time. But they only found enough oil to last one day. They lit the menorah with only enough oil for that one day but it burned for EIGHT DAYS!  This was truly a miracle. And the Jewish people took it as a sign from God,THE ONE TRUE GOD.... that He was pleased with their worship of Him.
Even today when we light the menorah for the eight consecutive days , we pray and thank God for his mercy, his love, his forgiveness,and Grace.
Today is the first day of Hanukkah. We always light the middle candle and then add one each day. I feel very reverent and honor God in this holiday, along with our family and friends.
Hanukkah is also called "the festival of lights "
Happy Hanukkah to all.
With love,
The Isaacs family
PS....we also eat foods fried in oil to remember the "oil". Our favorite is potato latkes!! Sorry weight watchers. This is an important tradition.
