Share the light. Hanukkah is celebrated during the darkest time of the year precisely to remind us that there is always light within each of us.
Each night of the holiday, we ceremoniously light the menorah — but we also ignite our very own inner glow as we remember and relive the victory of a small group over a seemingly insurmountable force. We recall the moment, nearly two-thousand years ago, when a small flask of oil exceeded every expectation and lit up the ancient Temple in Jerusalem — not just for one day, but a full eight nights. It goes to show that hope and faith don’t just flicker; they flare on and on.
Inspired by the tradition of placing the hanukkiyah in a window or doorway for all passersby to see, Hanukkah celebrations have evolved into major events for public celebration of Jewish culture.
Hanukkah begins at sunset, November 28 // Observed November 28 – December 6, 2021
