The Special Times of the Jewish Year Can Be
a Framework for Your Life as a Couple
Through the holiday cycle we have seen that life is a complex
weave of light and darkness, bitter and sweet, striving and
surrendering. The twisted candle reminds us that as a couple our

strand, the Divine Presence. As we perform the ritual of Havdalah,
we hold our hands up to the flame and catch the reflection of the
last light on our fingertips. We pray that the light will continue
to shine through our words and deeds, in our homes and in the
world. from Chapter 9
