Happy Hanukkah To Our Jewish Friends

Happy Hanukkah To Our Jewish Friends

Hanukkah commemorates the military victory of the ancient Jews, led by Judah Maccabee, over the army of the Greek-Syrians who had denied them religious freedom. This year, Hanukkah runs through Dec. 16.

When the temple in Jerusalem was reclaimed by the Jews, the Maccabees discovered only enough oil to light the giant menorah for one day. Instead, it lasted eight days. Hanukkah celebrates the miracle of that flame and the rededication of the temple.

Jews observe the event by lighting candles on a menorah, one for each night, praying in Hebrew and enjoying food cooked in oil. Many families exchange gifts each night.
