Hanukkah is a festival that commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple of Jerusalem. It includes the lighting of candles on every day throughout the course of the festival.
We celebrate the “Festival of Lights” as it has become known, because of the miracle G-D created on this day in the holy temple of Jerusalem. At the time, the Greeks held rule over the temple, and the Jews fought valiantly to reclaim it. When they were victorious, the Jews came to the temple only to find everything destroyed.
In order to rededicate the temple, a seven branched candelabra called a menorah had to burn within the temple at all times. However, they could only find one small jar of oil. The fastest they could produce new oil would be eight days; that one jar miraculously lasted the entire eight days.
We celebrate this miracle today by lighting candles all eight days of Hanukkah, and by eating foods fried in oil like the traditional Jewish ‘latke’, delicious fried potato pancake, and sufganiyot, jelly or other fried donuts.
Chanukah, in Hebrew חנוכה, also consists of two words, חנו כ”ה, which can be read as, “They rested on the 25”, as in , “the Jews finally rested on the 25th of the Jewish month Kislev”, which is when they won the battle and began to clean up the temple. 25 Kislev marks the start of Hannukah each year.
