Happy Hanukkah

November Fun

Join me for some Hanukkah celebration

Join in some fun Hanukkah customs, which include eating foods fried in oil -- latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiot (doughnuts); playing with the dreidel (a spinning top on which are inscribed the Hebrew letters nun, gimmel, hei and shin) and the giving of Hanukkah gelt, gifts of money, to children.

A little jewish history for you:

More than twenty-one centuries ago, the Holy Land was ruled by the Syrian-Greeks, who sought to forcefully hellenize the people of Israel. Against all odds, a small band of faithful Jews defeated one of the mightiest armies on earth, drove the Greeks from the land, reclaimed the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. When they sought to light the Temple's menorah (the seven branched candelabrum), they found only a single cruse of olive oil that had escaped contamination by the Greeks; miraculously, the one-day supply burned for eight days.
