What Is Hanukkah and Why Is It Celebrated?
Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday also known as the Festival of Lights. It lasts 8 days and is celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers, and fried foods. It’s celebrated because in the second century BCE, the Seleucids took over and tried to force the people of Israel to accept Greek beliefs and they refused. In fact, the Jews fought back and drove the Greeks off their land and reclaimed their Holy Temple in Jerusalem and rededicated it to God. When they went to light the Temple’s menorah, but found only a single cruse of olive oil. They lit the menorah and the one day supply of olive oil lasted 8 days until the new oil could be prepared under a ritual that purified it.
What Is A Menorah?
A menorah is a candelabrum that is used in Jewish worship. The menorah used for Hanukkah has 8 branches and a center socket. The one used in the ancient temple of Jerusalem had 7 branches.
What Is A Dreidel?
A dreidel is a small four sided spinning toy, like a top. Each side has a letter on it and it’s used in a children’s game played on Hanukkah. The letters on the sides form an acronym in Hebrew that says “Nes Gadol Hayah Sham” which is translated to “a great miracle happened there.” Which refers to the miracle that Hanukkah is centered around at the Temple.
