Five-eighths of a miracle
In what must be a remarkable scoop, one of your photographers appears to have captured a second miracle (TES, December 22). The TES has shown itself to be, as always, ahead of the field by discovering a menorah (candlestick) with all eight candles burning by only the fifth night of Chanukah (if not earlier).
The light which grows throughout the festival of freedom has an important message for the world today. What a shame that your well-meaning photograph misses such an educational opportunity.
