Shalom! Happy Hanukkah!

Hanukkah (or Chanukah) is the Jewish Festival of Lights which dates back a time over 2500 years ago when Antiochus, the then King of Syria, wanted the Jewish people worship Greek gods and some of the Jews rebelled.

The first candle of the Menorah is lit at nightfall on the eve of the festival’s first day.
