This Hanukkah, many families across the county area gathered each night to celebrate the special holiday with one another. The Argoff-Treseders, of Carmel Valley, found a new long-distance way to say their blessings, light the menorah and open gifts with loved ones. Exemplifying the technology-age solutions to long, expensive travel, the family used the Skype program to join their relatives, lighting the menorah with grandma and grandpa all the way in Washington, D.C., via video call. With a webcam and a Skype account, grandma and grandpa were able to see their two young grandchildren as they took part in traditional Hanukkah rituals and opened their gifts. Courtesy photo
