Happy Hanukkah my friends, here’s my gift to you

Today is the first day of Hanukkah for many of my friends.

Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday celebrated for eight days and nights. It starts on the 25th of the Jewish month of Kislev, which coincides with late November-late December on the secular calendar.

In Hebrew, the word “Hanukkah” means “dedication.” The name reminds us that this holiday commemorates the re-dedication of the holy Temple in Jerusalem following the Jewish victory over the Syrian-Greeks in 165 B.C.E.

HAPPY HANUKKAH to my friends who celebrate!!

  1. Thanks so much for your concise and accurate explanation of Chanukah. Though this parody is certainly fun, I would also recommend The Maccabeats. Also fun, but with the Chanukah message.
