Hanukkah or Chanukah is the Jewish festival of light . On the western calender, Hanukkah is celebrated in November or December.
Rosh Hashana is celebrated on The Jewish new year. It lasts for two days and it commemorates the creation of the world.

The story of Passover
The story of Hanukkah
Passover is a celebration to commemorate Moses leading the children of Israel out of Egypt, away from the pharaoh who used them as slaves.
Pharaoh had refused to release the slaves so God sent ten plagues on Egypt to demonstrate his power. They were plagues of Blood, Frogs, Lice, Flies, Livestock, Boils, Hail, Locusts, Darkness and the death of every first born son.
After the last plague, the pharaoh let the Israelites go and Moses led them to the promised land. On the way the people were frustrated how long it was taking to get there and Moses received the ten commandments from God. Jewish people still live by them today.
Jews have celebrated Passover since about 1300 BC.
