Festival of Lights 2k17

Sharing in the season of lights. Chanukah, the festival of lights is a Jewish tradition that commemorates the defeat of the Greeks by a small group of Jewish rebel warriors call the Maccabees. After they won they relit the eternal light at their temple that was destroyed by the Greeks but only had enough oil for one night. It would have taken eight days to retrieve more oil to keep the enteral flame lit.  

To their surprise, the oil that was supposed to last one night, shined for eight nights.

Today we light eight candles and enjoy treats fried in oil to remember the miracle of the oil lasting eight days.

Happy Chanukah
With much love
