The Dual Facets of Hanukkah

Every person has a public and a private personality. The public self is how we present ourselves to others. The private self is where lie our hopes, our fears and our spiritual yearnings. The emotionally healthy individual, more or less, keeps the two aspects of self in balance. The disturbed human being is unable to do so. The private self is sacrificed for the public one, or the public life is effaced and the private one made dominant.
