Hanukkah, known as the Festival of Lights, runs this year from December 10 through December 18. How can it help illuminate a dark and sad time for us? Originally intended to be a private celebration at home, hanukkiyahs, or menorahs, are displayed in the windowfor the passerby to enjoy. This year, they will continue to light the darkness, even if no one is on the street to see them.
As the light grows with each night of the eight-branched candelabrum, we hope to bring more light into our world. The light commemorates the legend of the single cruse of oil that lasted eight nights. We traditionally eat foods fried in oil such as latkes or sufganiyot, and due to the influence of other December holidays, it has also become the main gift-giving holiday for Jews in North America.
