Happy Hanukkah!

The Lights of Hanukkah

Happy Hanukkah to one and all! Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Hanukkah began at sundown last night. Hanukkah is traditionally celebrated with the lighting of the menorah, perhaps a game of dreidel or two, and hopefully with lots of latkes!
