What are some of your favorite happy Hanukkah images?
December 24 marks the beginning of the holiday that takes place over eight days and nights, honored with the lighting of the candles of the menorah. The day is a commemoration of the Maccabean Revolt when the Jewish people took back the Holy Temple of Jerusalem and rededicated it.
Hanukkah is marked by daily prayer services that include friends and families looking to share the holiday spirit with each other. It is one of the largest Jewish holidays of the year.
A variety of foods are passed around during the days of celebration, including potato latkes, donuts, croissant-type pastries and more. You can also play the dreidel game, which is a gambling game that’s been passed down for years.
The upcoming Hanukkah will end on Jan. 1, or New Year’s Day. Here are some of the best images to commemorate this joyous occasion.
