Psalm 122:6 / Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
CITY OF DAVID, JERUSALEM
The following blessing is recited when the Menorah is lit:
Baruch ata Adonai, Elohaynu melech haolam, asher kidshanu b’mitsvotav, v’tsivanu, l’hadlik ner shel Chanukah. (translation: We praise You, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who has sanctified us by Your Mitzvot and enjoined us to kindle the Chanukah lights.)
Baruch ata Adonai, Elohaynu melech haoalm, she-asa nisim la-a-vo-tenu, ba-ya-mim ha-hem bazman haze. (translation: We praise You, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who performed wondrous deeds for our ancestors in days of old at this season.)
Day 3 stands for truth without which we would stumble around in darkness. Instead truth brings freedom, nourishes happiness, opens one’s eyes and points the way to fulfillment; above all truth sets one free. Yohanan (John) stated in his book: “and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (Yohanan (John) 8:32).”
The truth that will set you free is found in Yohanan’s book, chapter 14, verse 6 where Y’shua (Jesus) declared, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes unto the Father, but through Me.”
The truth will definitely bring one into the Light that is the Life of man. A fulfilling life both now and for all of Eternity can be had when we come into the Abba’s (Father’s) presence through His Divine and Holy Son, Y’shua (Jesus).
