Hanukkah – December 22-30, 2019

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.

Hanukkah Resources For You To Enjoy

As we approach Hanukkah we look forward to lighting the candles of Hanukkah and singing the blessings together. Since Hanukkah is a holiday primarily celebrated at home, so we also wanted to provide you with resources for your use at home with friends and family.

May your holiday be bright with the celebration of the Festival of Lights!
