Hannukah Additional Information:
Hanukkah, which is also spelled "Chanukah" or "Hanukah," is a Jewish holiday commemorating the victory of the traditional Jews over the Greeks during the mid-second century B.C.E. It is also a holiday that celebrates the "Miracle of Lights," which took place when the Holy Temple was rededicated and the sparse amount of oil available lasted for eight days.
In remembrance of the rededication of the temple, the Hanukkah celebration takes place every year in November or December. One of the central elements of this celebration is the Hanukkah menorah, a nine-branched candelabra that symbolizes the seven-branched menorah used during the rededication of the Holy Temple.
