All about Hanukkah
Hannukah lasts eight days. It recalls the miracles and wonders that were wrought for our forefathers and marks the victory of the Hasmoneans over the Greeks.
On the first evening of Hanukkah, one candle is lit, with an extra candle each night, until the 8th day.. This is why Hanukkah is also called the “Festival of Lights”.
