It’s Chanukah time

This year from sundown, Dec. 18 - 26, Jews worldwide commemorate Chanukah, a Jewish holiday which celebrates the victory of the Maccabees over the larger Syrian army. This holiday also celebrates a miracle that happened during this time, where just a day's supply of oil allowed the menorah light in the rededicated Temple in Jerusalem to remain lit for eight days. Jews worldwide celebrate freedom each year by  lighting the Menorah candles each evening of the holiday, one additional candle each night until the eighth night, and the Menorah is fully lit.
