Happy Hanukkah!

on December 22, 2019

Hanukkah, which is Hebrew for “dedication,” is the Festival of Lights.

It commemorates the victory over the Maccabees over the Syrian Greek army, and the subsequent miracle of rededicating the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and restoring its menorah, or lamp.

The miracle of Hanukkah is that only one vial of oil was found with just enough oil to illuminate the Temple lamp for one day, and yet it lasted for eight full days.
