Moon Over Maui

A Jewish Mystical Journey through the Year

“A Great Miracle Happened Here”

Written By: Jueli Garfinkle - Dec• 16•11

I believe in miracles.

I don’t know how to explain miracles or to justify them. But maybe that is the very definition of miracle: Miracles happen right before your eyes, and yet they are unexplainable.

Merriam-Webster 11th Collegiate Dictionary defines “miracle” like this:

  1. An extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs.
  2. An extremely outstanding or unusual event, thing, or accomplishment.

Every moon cycle—every day, if we are attuned—is filled with miracle. Like the beating of your heart, the birth of a babe, forgiveness, migrating Monarchs, the dawn…

The moon cycle of Kislev specifically celebrates the miraculous: our stories from the past and experiences of the present.

Find yours. Acknowledge and rejoice in the bounty of miracle—both large and minuscule—that is present in your life.
