Overshadowed by Christmas every year is a little holiday called Hanukkah, which is celebrated by people of the Jewish faith.  For those of you who don’t know what Hannukah is really about….this post is for you.  Hannukah is the…

8-day Jewish festival of lights and it officially begins tonight at sundown.  The holiday commemorates when the Jewish people regained control of Jerusalem and the Holy Temple in the 2nd century BC.

Jewish people light on candle on the menorah (the candle holder) each night of the 8 night holiday. (The menorah has 9 candles- that one remains lit each night to provide light and it is called “the shamash” or the helper or servant)

The miracle -The Jews were purifying the Temple with a menorah which only seemed to have enough oil to last for one night.  It actually burned for 8 nights, hence the 8 nights of Hanukkah!
