Hanukkah ("dedication") is the joyous eight-day celebration when we commemorate the victory of the Macabees over the armies of Syria in 165 B.C.E. and the subsequent liberation and "re-dedication" of the Temple in Jerusalem.

We celebrate by lighting one more candle on the chanukiah after each day of Hanukkah. We eat foods cooked in oil, such as latkes and jelly doughnuts; and we sing songs and play dreidel games.

Celebrate with our Hanukkah Experience where we have crafts, dreidle games, music, services, dinner and the lighting of the Hanukkah menorah.
