who-we-are-jewish-menorah-wine-glassHannukah:  The Festival of Lights commemorates the Maccabean victory over the Syrians in 165 BCE and the rededication of the temple which had been defiled by King Antiochus.  Each of the eight nights we light an additional candle, eat  latkes (potato pancakes) and  suffganiyot(jellied donuts)  and spin the dreidel (four-sided holiday top), all  to commemorate our  liberation from oppression, freedom to worship and finding light in the darkest of times
