In the vast spectrum of historical fiction, a reader is hard-pressed to find much written about the 11th century. Aside from the trilogy “Rashi’s Daughters,” written by Glendale resident Maggie Anton, there are few novels featuring this era, and most focus on Charlemagne, the Crusades and Christianity-based story lines dealing with religious persecution. Throughout the three books, Salomon ben Isaac, a great Jewish scholar, instructs his three daughters in the teachings of the Talmud, which is the doctrine used in Judaism to explain the Torah.

Michael Martinez GLENDALE -- To Karen Berg, the Hanukkah potluck dinner party Friday night at her home was the ultimate o7 tzedekahf7 , or altruism. "The party itself is really about just getting together, about celebrating our community," said Berg, 17, a Glendale High senior who organized the dinner. "It was something I really wanted to do for the congregation. Including several people from Burbank, about 40 to 50 members of Congregation Hugat Haverim -- which Berg's mother, Jacqueline Gish, said means "circle of friends" -- attended the dinner and the formal Hanukkah services that followed.

GLENDALE - While today may be just another Friday to some, for others it is the eve of the 25th day of the month of Kislev, the start of Hanukkah. For Glendale residents Emily Bergman and her husband, Mark Allen, the eighth-day holiday is a celebration of freedom. Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, commemorates the victory in 165 B.C. of the Maccabees, a family of Jews from Judea, over the Syrian tyrant Antiochus IV. "This small band was miraculously able to beat a much larger and more powerful army to gain their freedom," Bergman said.

Perhaps it's this time of year, more than any other season, when thoughts of spring rebirth turn from the secular to the spiritual, tilted toward the heavens above and reflected to the inner soul. And perhaps, too, this spiritual reflection is shared by loyal followers of the country's two most common monotheistic religions: Judaism and Christianity. But, unfortunately, between the two religions, which share a common origin and worship a common God, there has been a long-standing disharmony that also must be briefly reflected upon.

Tim Willert More than 2,000 years ago, David took on Goliath in the name of religious freedom -- and won. In 165 B.C., a small but determined group of Jews, their religious identities threatened by a Syrian-Greek tyrant, defeated a much larger army and recaptured and restored their temple in Jerusalem. Friday marked the beginning of the annual Jewish celebration of Hanukkah, which commemorates the 2nd century B.C. uprising of the Jews against their oppressors.

Marshall Allen SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- Julio Mejia, his wife Janeth, and their four children have been sharing a one-bedroom apartment in Glendale for the past seven years. Soon, they will own an 1,100-square-foot, three-bedroom condominium that has a two-car garage. The new home is possible because of Habitat for Humanity International and the generosity of local volunteers, many from Temple Sinai in Glendale. Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical Christian ministry that seeks to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action throughout the world.
