Hanukkah

back to home

Hanukkah, Hannukah or Chaunkah will be celebrated this year for eight days from sunset on December 21st to December 29th. Commonly referred to as the “Festival of Lights”, Hanukkah commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean revolt in the 2nd century BC. The ceremony calls for the lighting each day of a candle on the Hanukkah Menorah and is a time for great festivities within the Jewish community. Member stores generally carry a tasteful selection of invitations and greeting cards to help celebrate this important religious occasion.
