A friend recently told me that the first night of Chanukah was very difficult for her girls. Both were in college far away from home and the semester calendar called for them to be at school for the start of the holiday. Both girls called in tears as they realized they would not be with their family to light the candles on the menorah. The mom, creative and clever, said, "I can fix that." After she lit the first candle, she took a picture of the family's menorah with her cell phone and sent it to her daughters. Once the picture arrived, they all had the menorah in front of them, even though they were miles apart. They created a new tradition with new technology.
