The Jewish celebration known as Hanukkah commemorates the re-dedication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem and the miracle that kept the menorah’s candles burning for eight nights. Often called the Festival of Lights, the holiday is celebrated with the lighting of the menorah, traditional foods, games, and gifts. On this day, we are reminded to be grateful for the gifts of faith, family, and community which rekindle hope when we most need it.
