Wishing all of our Jewish brothers and sisters a Happy Hanukkah! This year, the holiday began on the evening of Dec. 10 and ends Dec. 18.
Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights, the holiday that commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem. It is celebrated for eight days in honor of the miracle of the oil that lasted eight days in the Holy Temple. On each day, celebrants light candles on a Hanukkiah (a nine-branched candelabrum), starting with one candle and adding one more each day.
