Hanukkah, or Chanukah, is a minor Jewish holiday. It's a celebration of a miracle that happened more than two thousand years ago. The miracle involved an unlikely group reclaiming the temple in Jerusalem. Then, a one-day supply of olive oil was used to light the menorah which then miraculously lasted 8 days. Because of this miracle, Hanukkah is celebrated in ways involving oil and lights.
Even though it is celebrated in December, Hanukkah is not just like Christmas for Jews. Learn more about the history of Hanukkah and use one of the following to help with what to write in a Hanukkah card.
