Hanukkah is here!
December 21st is the first day of Hanukkah. The Jewish holiday celebrates the victory of the Maccabees and the re-consecration of Temple of Jerusalem. The flame needed to consecrate the temple with an Eternal Flame had to burn for eight days, but there was only enough oil for one night. Somehow, the oil lasted the full eight days and time to prepare more consecrated oil and the miracle is celebrated annually with Hannukah, the Festival of Lights.
Celebrate Hanukkah yourself or with someone you know who celebrates it with a traditional menorrah candelabra. Spin a dreidel or wear a Hanukkah apron in blue and white while making food for the feast. Crank Adam Sandler’s “Hanukkah” song or dress up as another SNL favorite as Hanukkah Harry, as played by Jon Lovitz!
No matter what holiday you celebrate this winter… Shalom! And Happy Holidays!
