Chanukah is the eight-day Jewish "Festival of Lights," this year begins at sundown Tuesday, December 4th.  Each evening at sunset an additional candle is lit to commemorate the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem some 2000 years ago.  The holiday also celebrates the miracle of one day’s worth of pure ritual oil burning for eight days until a new supply could be obtained

"Chanukah's a time for celebrating the freedom to openly celebrate our values; the Menorah proclaims that message to the world", said Rabbi Nochum Kurinsky, Director of Chabad @ the Beaches “Chanukah is a time for strengthening Jewish identity, and for having fun.”
