The Festival of Lights

No comments

I just wanted to wish those celebrating a great eight days! The Festival of Lights, also called Hanukah, Hanukkah, Channukah, and a few other different spellings is a celebration of the moment in Jewish history when sacred oil for lighting the Temple lanterns was down to just one day’s worth (due to some monkeying around by invaders leading to a tampering with the rest of the oil) but it managed to last eight days. It’s also a time when the historically and often currently mistreated minority Jews around the world can celebrate their culture and history and remind themselves and their community to be proud of who they are.

I’m very happy for everyone celebrating this holiday and I want to wish you a great one!
