so is this the end of Hanukkah? Is there a party or something? /jewnoob
Yep, 8 nights and we're over and out for Hanukkah 2013!
Many Jewish families have a Chanukah party during the holiday, but the observances for the holiday are relatively simple. We light the Chanukiah (Chanukah menorah - candlelabra) for 8 nights, sing the Hebrew/English blessings over the lighting of the candles, sing Chanukah songs, play the dreidl (a kind of top) game, eat potato latkes, soofganiyot (fried jelly donuts), exchange gifts. Some families exchange one gift for the whole family (my family's tradition). Others give the children gifts each night. There are communal actitivities that take place in synagogues during Chanukah - concerts with Chanukah music (I participated in one last night as a chorus member), dinners where the traditional holiday foods are served (latkes, in particular).
(I like this one. Particularly all the food. )
Oh, boy, Oh, boy, Oh, boy! It's getting closer!
Just 2 days until Max & co. participate in the US Legends show!
Like Max says "Go BIG or go home!"
Twitter: Phew, Max made it and is in NJ!!
Rework of the free skate. Please no more Carmen. Unfortunately he's still with Lori Nichol.
Max was totally charming in the "Legends" show last night. He did do some retakes, much to the audience's delight!
His quote mentions that he is moving jumps around, but I wonder if he is keeping 3 quads in the LP.
Hopefully they had taken out the 4T, and only going with the 4S. His 4T has been very inconsistent. Why risk it at US Nationals? He needs to focus on the PCS.

RISE: Max Aaron, a film by Liberty Mutual - YouTube
Published on Dec 20, 2013
Ask U.S. figure skater Max Aaron what it all came down to, and he'll say mental preparation. It was the biggest performance of his career, and he blew it. Everyone said he'd never fit in. Everyone said he'd never be a champion. But instead of giving up, Max got back up. Now, Max is on the RISE and in the running for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
On his journey to make Team USA, there's no turning back — there's no stopping him.
At Liberty Mutual, we believe with every setback, there's a chance to come back. RISE.
EDIT: A couple of other brief RISE videos...
Max Aaron: Resolution to RISE
U.S. Olympic Hopeful Max Aaron has one goal going into 2014. Find out what his resolution to RISE is in this video.

Max Aaron: Inspiration to RISE
What inspires you to keep going? If you ask U.S. figure skater Max Aaron, he'll tell you the same thing every time. Watch this video to find out his inspiration.
