Happy Hanukkah!

Tonight begins the “Festival of the Lights”. Christians mistakenly refer to it as the Jewish Christmas but it is actually not an extremely important holiday in Judaism. Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday commemorating the re dedication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt and the capture of Jerusalem by the Hebrews.

Here is wishing all have a wonderful Holiday Season regardless of faith!
