Chanukah, the festival of lights is a twofold holiday that commemorates both an unlikely victory of the small band of Jewish Maccabees over the Syrian-Greek forces and the miracle of an inexhaustible flame rekindled in the Holy Temple. We take this opportunity to celebrate the faithful, the outnumbered, and the seemingly helpless figures in our history, who set an example for each of us with their achievements despite overwhelming political and religious adversity. The praise and thankfulness we express over candlelight with family empowers and motivates us to take charge of our personal, religious, and institutional destiny.

The holiday of Passover presents us with an opportunity to reflect on our history. The exodus from Egypt marks the creation of the Jewish nation, a story that has unfolded over more than 3,000 years and spanned the entire globe. The Touro College and University system’s story began forty-five years ago in a small classroom with thirty-five students. In the short time we have been educating students, we have grown to include 29 undergraduate and graduate programs, in five countries, with a current enrollment of 18,000 students. I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and appreciation for your contribution to the development and growth of our educational community.

You have my deep-felt appreciation for your diligence, dedication and exemplary performance in the aftermath of this event.
