This month we’re celebrating the various methods numerous religious traditions observe the Holy Days. In the present day we’re exploring the Jewish custom of Hanukkah which is a competition of lights remembering the rededication of the second Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.

On every of the eight nights of Hanukkah, a candle is lit on a novel candelabra known as a menorah. This yr, Hanukkah started on Sunday, December 22, and ends on the night of Monday, December 30.

Hanukkah means dedication and likewise commemorates the victory of the Maccabees and the miracle of the one vial of oil that lasted for eight full days to light up the Temple.
