On Monday night, 6th candle lighting of Chanukah, a group of
enthusiastic youths from Maale Adumim built a giant
Chanukiah in Mevaseret Adumim.
The Chanukiah was made with approximately 400 tealight
candles with sand in falafel bags placed on the side of the mountain.
This was a unique way to publicize the miracle of Chanukah.
Thanks to Chava Docks who sent me the photos which I placed online at:
Enjoy the photos.

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
Wednesday night, November 27, 2013.
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 Jewish Trivia Quiz
What does the Hebrew word Chanukah mean ?
What type of foods do we specificaly eat on Chanukah ?
What activities are forbidden during Chanukah ?
Are woman obligated to light the menorah ?

Which family was Judah the Maccabee from ?
How many branches did the menorah in the temple have ?
The above questions are examples from the multiple choice
Flash quiz. There are two levels of questions, two timer settings.
Both kids and adults will find it educational and enjoyable.
