Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival

Hanukkah 2023

The holiday originated when Judah the Maccabee and his followers reclaimed the temple in the village of Modi'in from Syrian King Antiochus IV. The temple was cleansed and prepared for rededication. The Hebrew word Hanukkah means "dedication." When the sacred temple Menorah (candelabra) was relit, there was only enough sacred oil to burn for one day. Yet, according to tradition, the oil miraculously lasted eight days until more purified oil could be found. If you like it, share this page to all your friends.

Hanukkah begins in the evening of Thursday, 7 December 2023, and ends in the evening of Friday, 15 December 2023.
