Twas the 6th night of Chanukah…
PSA: IF YOU BAKE(AS OPPOSED TO FRY) YOUR LATKES, YOU ARE BASICALLY MISSING THE ENTIRE POINT OF EATING LATKES ON CHANUKAH.
We sometimes think we come from a secular family… That’s just not true. There is no such thing as a Jewish family who is traditionally secular…If you think of the amount of generations since Matan Torah… Let’s just guess, let’s say there are one hundred-sixty generations since the Torah was given. You have a guy who grew up FFB, he grew up in a frum family. He says “All hundred-sixty generations of my family were shomer shabbos, shomer kashrus and learned Torah.” The most distant Jew, the Jew who says I come from a family that is not observant and they haven’t been observant for generations, at most it is four or five generations! At most! Usually it is two or three.
Okay he comes from a non-observant family…but it’s not true; because if you look at those hundred-sixty generations, okay for him it wasn’t a hundred sixty, it was a hundred fifty-six. Only a hundred-fifty six of the hundred sixty generations since the giving of the Torah was his family frum… Everyone is coming from a family of Torah observance! When we live a life of Torah, we are living a life that is a life of fidelity to the principals and sacrifices and lives of our families, whatever kind of family we come from. — Excerpt from shiur given(originally) at Shapell’s/Darche Noam”Chanukah- A Baal Teshuva’s Holiday" by Rabbi Gidon Shoshan
