Hanukah Hub

TEXT: Hanukah Hub IMAGE: Many hanukkiah burning at our Hanukah Celebration
At Hanukah, we remember when the Jews rededicated the Temple in Jerusalem after Judah and the Macabees defeated the Syrian-Greek army.

When the Jews went to light the Temple‚Äôs menorah after their victory, there was only a one-day supply of oil left, but miraculously it lasted for eight nights!

So today, we light candles for eight nights and celebrate religious freedom. We play dreidel, eat chocolate coins, give gifts, and eat foods fried in oil to remind of us the miracle at the rededication of the Temple.
