Educational resources about Chanukah and over 500 Chanukah videos

Hi Everyone!

Chanukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, is observed for eight days, beginning on the evening of the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev. This year Chanukah starts Sunday night, December 6, 2015.

Chanukah is a wonderful holiday of renewed dedication, faith, hope and spiritual light. It's a holiday that says: "Never lose hope." Chanukah commemorates the victory of a small band of Maccabees over the pagan Syrian-Greeks who ruled over Israel.

The Chanukah Page includes lesson sites in several languages, videos, songs, Chanukah trivia quiz, English Hebrew vocabulary lists, recipes, games, humor, photos, clipart, coloring pages and a map of the sites of the Maccabees 166-161 BCE.
