"And [Yosef] asked Pharaoh's officers who were with him in prison... 'Why are your faces sad today?'" (B'reishis 40:7.) How did this seemingly small act of asking two fellow prisoners how they were feeling lead to a massive ripple effect? What does this teach us about the enormous power of "small" acts of kindness? How is this lesson connected to 19 Kislev and Chanukah?
