This year the Jewish festival of Chanukah is celebrated December 12 – 20, this is an 8 day Jewish holiday that celebrates the miracle of light, it is a joyous festival of lights. People celebrate by lighting the menorah, playing dreidel games, and eating festive foods including Potato Latkes, and Jelly Donuts.
We talked about the festival on
