Hanukkah celebration adds Jewish flavor to Winterfest

What is the correct spelling and pronunciation of Hanukkah

The single day supply ended up lasting for eight days, and to commemorate the miracle, the Hanukkah festival was created, and is still celebrated across the globe today.

The Jewish celebration of Hanukkah begins Tuesday at sundown.

Melania and I wish all of our Jewish brothers and sisters celebrating this meaningful holiday a happy and healthy eight nights in the company of those they love. Special blessings are recited before the lighting of the menorah, and traditional songs are sung afterward.

Children receive Hanukkah "gelt" (the Yiddish word for money) from parents and grandparents. "It's our responsibility to help one another, to do good, to take care of each other, and to bring more light into our world". On Saturday, people wait to light the menorah candles until after dark.

Sports arenas also hosted Hanukkah events, including the NBA arenas of the Brooklyn Nets, Orlando Magic, Miami Heat, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors, Phoenix Suns and Atlanta Hawks; the NHL arenas of the Arizona Coyotes, New York Islanders, Nashville Predators, Tampa Bay Lightning, New Jersey Devils and Columbus Blue Jackets; and the NFL stadium of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Hertz said it made sense for them to come to Tulsa to celebrate because the message of Chabad is to give every Jewish person the opportunity to feel part of the Jewish nation, which is easier in big cities with large Jewish populations, and might be more hard in smaller cities "where Jews might feel left out".

Seligson said the current proliferation of public Hanukkah celebrations can be traced to 1973, when the Chabad movement launched a global campaign to raise awareness of the holiday.

Now menorahs can be seen from the White House lawn to the Eiffel Tower to Red Square in Moscow. That's why the holiday is also referred to as the "Festival of Lights".

"It's about the belief in God and how we're all under the same divine providence", he said. The Maccabeans overthrew a much larger force of Greeks, who persecuted the Jews.
