Chanukah Begins - December 2

Chanukah, the Jewish "Festival of Lights," also known as the "Feast of Dedication," begins at sunset. In Judaism, Chanukah is celebrated for eight days to commemorate the victory of Judah the Maccabee for religious freedom and rededication of the Temple in 165 B.C.E. and to celebrate the power of God and the faithfulness of Israel. During the celebration, the eight candles of the menorah, the Chanukah lamp, are lit one day at a time. Card-playing is traditionally associated with the festival, as is spinning the dreidel (a spinning top). Schools will be acknowledging the festival through a variety of activities that promote learning and understanding for all students. We join you in wishing students, staff and members of the community who will be lighting the menorah in their homes a joyful time of sharing.
