Hanukkah, or the Festival of Rededication, celebrates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem in 164 BCE. 

We celebrate by lighting one more candle on the chanukiah after each day of Hanukkah. We eat foods cooked in oil, such as latkes and jelly doughnuts; and we sing songs and play dreidel games.

Be sure to check the Kol Ami calendar for our various Hanukkah celebrations for adults, children and families.


Listen to the Hanukkah blessings.
