Hanukkah is around the corner. It is a holiday with a very unusual history, symbols and traditions. It’s also a holiday that provides very important historical and spiritual lessons to every Jew. This year, from the evening of December 24th, 2016 to January 1st, 2017 – Jewish people will celebrate Hanukkah.

The Bible refers to it as the “feast of dedication” (John 10:22), the Books of the Maccabees as the “celebration of the purification” and Titus Flavius Josephus calls it the “festival of lights”. What does the word Hanukkah mean? Hannukat Baba’it means housewarming, and hanak (lahanok) is to have a grand opening; to give a housewarming. Let’s see what preceded the events of Hanukkah!

Yulia Polozova "Why I`m here?"

Before coming to Congregation, I had spent my life trying to hide my Jewish identity. When I was a child, I did it because of the anti-Semitic manifestations and other aggression I experienced at school, but after that, I continued to hide who I was out of fear, of new undeserved insults.

Not surprisingly, when I turned to God in the Bible during this time, I could not see the Jewish roots, Jewishness or the God of Israel.

I was already a believer a few years later when I joined Kiev Jewish Messianic Congregation. It was here that God began to “unfreeze” me. My deep rooted fears began to leave me step by step and, I began to accept myself as a Jew. It was a long process as my heart was full of fear and confusion. Honestly, it was my spiritual family who ultimately helped me to understand and truly accept myself as a Jew. Finally, I felt good and comfortable in life. I realized that the very thing I was made to feel ashamed of earlier in my life was indeed a privilege … even a responsibility. I realized it was possible to be one of His people without feeling shame. I found out it was possible to be a Jewish believer like others, accepted by our Father. Not only that, but perhaps the most interesting thing I realized that all of those fears and the inner bondage I carried had severely limited my fellowship with God. As I became free from the inside, the things God had designed for me as a Jewish woman began to unfold in my life.

I keep feeling the fullness of joy and fellowship with my Lord for many years. This is very cool and I’m really happy!
