Menorah Lighting at Liberty Station to Mark First Night of Hanukkah

Instead, some say that the festival of lights may be a second Sukkot, a harvest festival that lasts eight days, but geared toward olive growers.

US President Donald Trump wished his "Jewish brothers and sisters" in America, Israel and across the world a happy Hanukkah on Tuesday, as Jews lit candles worldwide to celebrate the holiday. As a young, Jewish law student hoping to marry my wonderful Catholic boyfriend, I pictured decorating Christmas trees with dreidel ornaments while eating latkes and drinking eggnog. "We try to educate ourselves and educate our children of how to be good people, how to bring light and good to the world and when you give a child money and you tell them, 'Look, why don't you give half to charity and half to yourself, ' it really teaches them value".

A common game played during Hanukkah celebrations is dreidel. "That is the way we as a community will leave this world a brighter place". "Plus, honestly, we have so much fun, why not?"

It has been used in annual menorah lightings at the Chabad's Hanukkah celebrations ever since.

But Hanukkah, which begins at sundown Tuesday (Dec. 12), is an altogether different experience for her now. In this case, the first letter of the Hebrew word for Hanukkah doesn't have a English translation.

Rabbi Moshe Goldman says he loves to see the crowds that come out to watch the lighting of a five-metre high menorah in Waterloo Public Square each year.

Jeffrey Hoffman, who in 1993 helped fix the Hubble Telescope as part of the crew of the Space Shuttle Endeavour, celebrated Hanukkah above the earth by twirling his dreidel, showing his Hanukkah supplies and wishing Jews everywhere a happy Hanukkah during live satellite communication.

Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday that happens in the wintertime every year. The traditional Orthodox movement promotes bringing Hanukkah celebrations beyond the synagogue and into public spaces, and is connected to numerous public celebrations in the world.

There also will be crafts for children, rides for all ages and a photo opportunity at a replica of the Western Wall. It will continue an important tradition within the new Hanukkah celebration.

"In general, the menorah is the sign of religious freedom", said Shemtov. "All we had was the menorah lighting and the ceremony around it".

A series of events celebrating Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of light, is planned by Chabad of the Berkshires, according to an announcement from Rabbi Levi Volovik, director of Chabad. "This year it will be part of a grander thing". They include latkes (which are potato pancakes) and sufganiyou (jam-filled doughnuts).
