Transcript of HANUKKAH

Over 2000 years ago palestine was ruled by king Antiohus
the 4th Syrian greek leader. The king forbade the jewish people from practicing their religion. He commanded the jewish to honor the temple of Jerusalem and turn it into a temple of Zeus. They fought back in a small army led by Judah Maccabees and they took back their temple. When they went to light the oil lamp in the temple, there was only enough for one day. The lamp was lit, they were surprised it burned brightly for 8 days. A wonderful miracle happen that day and the jewish wanted future generations to know about the miracle and the event that led up to it. So they created Hanukkah to commemorate it.
Dreidel: A dreidel is a four sided spinning top played during the jewish holiday of Hanukkah. The dreidel is a jewish variant on the teetotum, also a gambling toy found
in many European cultures. Each side of the dreidel is a letter from the Hebrew alphabet.
The Jewish celebrate Haunkkah by lighting
the Menorah.

The celebration beings each day at dusk. On the first night of the holiday, a family member is chosen to light the shamash and the first Hanukkah candle. While the candles are being lit a family member says a blessing or sings a song dedicated to the miracle that happened over 2000 years ago. On the second night another family member lights the second candle and relights the first. This ritual continues until all the candles have been lit. The menorah is often placed near a window so that the hole world can see it.
Also they exchange Hanukkah cards with friends and family, eat delicious foods, sing songs, give gifts, play games and give gold covered chocolate coins.
Where did Hanukkah
Hanukkah stared in Judea, now known as Israel.
It began at the Temple in Jerusalem in the 2nd century B.C., to commemorate the miracle of the oil that allowed the temple's menorah to remain lit for 8 days.
