Hanukkah History
Also called Chanukah and the Festival of Lights, this Jewish holiday begins on 25th Kislev for eight days and nights on dates from late November to late December. It celebrates a re-dedication of the Second Temple of Jerusalem at the time of a Maccabean Revolt in 165 BCE by Judah Maccabee. A day’s supply of olive oil burnt in the Temple’s menorrah for eight days, the time taken to prepare new kosher oil. This festival honours that miracle.
