    Hanukkah (however you spell it in English, they're all correct) begins at sundown Saturday evening......

    And lasts for 8 days and nights....(there are 9 candles because the extra candle lights the others)

    May we all have a light filled, joyous celebration with plenty of latkes

    and "sufganiyot"

    Yay! Yes, Happy Hanukkah!!

    I'm not Jewish, but always thought I'd marry in...i went to a religious college and studied all relgions and I really connected with Judaism the most. Alas, i married a Catholic dude so I have to settle with having a best friend who is Jewish. ANYWAY...i want to hear everyone's plans and what you'll be eating too! Let me live vicariously! Latkes are one of my absolute favorite things!!!

    Enjoy all eight nights!

    Happy Chanuka, Chag Sameach everyone.

    I'm making latkes on Sunday (and probably one or more times during the feast...........).
    There are parties to go to, gatherings at the shoppingmall to light candles (well lights since they do not alloud real candles at the mall) and plenty of other social gatherings.
    Chabad is really busy here with all sorts of activities.
    So-have fun everyone and enjoy the lights and may all our days be filled with light and joy.

    Chanukah -- the eight-day festival of light that begins on the eve of Kislev 25 ( December 8, 2012) -- celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, of purity over adulteration, of spirituality over materiality.

    More than twenty-one centuries ago, the Holy Land was ruled by the Seleucids (Syrian-Greeks), who sought to forcefully Hellenize the people of Israel. Against all odds, a small band of faithful Jews defeated one of the mightiest armies on earth, drove the Greeks from the land, reclaimed the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and rededicated it to the service of G-d.

    When they sought to light the Temple's menorah, they found only a single small vessel of olive oil that had escaped contamination by the Greeks; miraculously, the one-day supply burned for eight days, until new oil could be prepared under conditions of ritual purity.

    To commemorate and publicize these miracles, the sages instituted the festival of Chanukah. At the heart of the festival is the nightly menorah lighting: a single flame on the first night, two on the second evening, and so on till the eighth night of Chanukah, when all eight lights are kindled.

    On Chanukah we also recite Hallel and the Al HaNissim prayer to offer praise and thanksgiving to G-d for "delivering the strong into the hands of the weak, the many into the hands of the few... the wicked into the hands of the righteous."

    Chanukah customs include eating foods fried in oil -- Potato Latkes (potato pancakes) and Sufganiot (Hanukkah Jelly Doughnuts) ; playing with the dreidel (a spinning top on which are inscribed the Hebrew letters nun, gimmel, hei and shin, an acronym for Nes Gadol Hayah Sham, "a great miracle happened there"); and the giving of Chanukah gelt (gifts of money) to children to teach them to increase in charity and good deeds; and to add to the festive holiday spirit.

    Happy Channukkah everyone!

    We're cutting back on latkes this year, as my parents are not in a position to eat so much fried foods anymore. It is still meaningful for me to light the candles.

    I'm going to a couple of parties held by different synagogues. They're so much fun! One synagogue is haivng a Chanukkah Shabbaton, which means they're hosting the Shabbat dinner.
