“The joyous festival of Hanukkah begins on 25 Kislev of the Jewish calendar. It celebrates two miracles – a great Jewish military victory and a miraculous supply of oil for the Temple.

Hanukkah – also called the Festival of Lights – for eight days. TheHanukkah menorah holds nine candles, one for each of the eight nights and an additional candle that’s used to light the others. One candle is lit on the first night, two on the second night, until all eight candles are lit on the eighth night. Hanukkahis a time to celebrate with family and friends, to eat holiday treats, to give gifts (especially to children) and to play the dreidel game. Now let’s take a look at the history and roots of Hanukkah to find out why it became a holiday at all.”
