Chanukah or Hanukkah brings joy to all Jewish homes. The glow of candles or olive oil burning in the Chanukiah-one added for each of the eight nights lights up the dark in the windows facing the street. In Jerusalem’s Old City the Chanukiah sheltered in glass boxes, line the winding alleyways, creating their special magic for the dark winter nights. The whole world seems lit up and glowing with beauty and warmth-the message is clear. Light overcomes darkness.Dreidel Spin
The Maccabeats – Candlelight – Hanukkah
Indoors, families and friends gather to share in the fun with latkes, dreidels, songs, and of course, sufganiyot-those delicious “donuts” filled with amazing flavors. In Israel the trays of sufganiyot tantalize as you walk through any mall or shopping area and the competition between bakers is keen as they strive to come up with a new innovation in flavors each year.
Chanukah or Hanukkah celebrations include games of spinning the dreidel.
