Hanukkah History
Also called Chanukah or the Festival of Lights, this Jewish holiday on 21-29 December in 2008, celebrates re-dedication of the Temple of Jerusalem. In Maccabees and other sources it was seized back from the Hellenites in 165 BCE by Judah Maccabee. A day’s supply of olive oil burnt in the Temple’s menorrah for 8 days, the time taken to prepare new oil. The 8 day festival marks this miracle.

 With “May your holiday be filled with joy and light” on the board, “Shalom” in the centre, “Happy Chanukah” on the door and 1892 below the menorrah.

 Traditional Hanukkah foods are fried in olive oil. Donuts or sufganiyot are shown left, with potato pancakes or latkes in the photo by Daniel Sils above.
Children play games with a dreidel, spun like a dice. They also receive gifts or money. 
