About this Article

Capt. Becky Moschel of Lincolnshire is celebrating Hanukkah as she serves in Afghanistan, and she got a little holiday help from her suburban congregation at Anshe Tikvah, who sent her a package with a menorah, candles and traditional holiday foods. "One of the highlights of this deployment for me was receiving the wonderful care package from the children of Anshe Tikvah," Moschel wrote.
