More than 2,000 years ago, the Jewish people won a revolt against the Syrians, reclaiming their temple. When they lit a menorah for re-dedication, they only had enough oil to burn for one day, yet it burned for eight. The eight days of Hanukkah honor that miracle. Today, some Jewish children receive a gift for each of the eight days, a lovely holiday tradition. We wish you and your family a blessed holiday season!
