- Saturday night December 8 – December 16.This year we light the first Chanukah candle onSaturday, December 8. We add one candle each night
through Saturday evening, December 15. Remember, on
Friday December 14 the Chanukah candles are lit before
lighting Shabbat Candles. We make certain that night’scandle will burn until at least 75 minutes after sundown,which is about 5:35 pm.What does Chanukah commemorate? TheSyrian-Greeks, in about 150 BCE, tried to make the Jewsadopt some of their pagan practices. They also tried tointroduce the sacrifice of unclean animals in the Temple.The Maccabees, a family of Jewish priests-turned-warriors, managed to vanquish the marauding Syrian-Greek armies. However, the Syrian-Greeks tried to defileall the pure oil for the Menorah by breaking the seals onthe bottles. The Maccabees found one vial of pure oil,enough to kindle the Menorah for one day. The Sanhedrin,the Jewish Religious high court, decided to light all of theoil and fulfill the mitzvah (commandment) as required,and a miracle occurred. The Menorah burned for eightdays, allowing the Maccabees the requisite time tosanctify themselves and prepare more oil. It was decidedto light candles in areas visible to passers-by to publicizethis great miracle. We light one candle the first night, andadd one every night until the end of the holiday.There are many special Mitzvot, Commandments,and customs that are observed on Chanukah. In additionto lighting the candles, we eat latkes (potato pancakes),and sufganiyot (jelly rolls), to recall the miracle that took  place with the oil. We also add the prayer of Hallel, a prayer of praise and thanks to G-d as well as the AlHanisim, a prayer thanking G-d for His miracles, which isadded to the Amidah and Grace after meals.Children play with dreidels to remind us how wedeceived the Syrian-Greeks, whose plan called for theassimilation of those that they conquered to Syrian-Greek culture. Their laws prohibited Jews from learning Torah.They had regular patrols to all Jewish schools to assurethat no Torah was being taught. The Jews were dedicatedto the Torah and devised a plan to trick them. Theylearned Torah, but each school had a sentry. When thesentry announced the imminent arrival of the Syrian-Greek patrol, all the children hid their books and took outdreidels, which were simple gambling implements. TheSyrian-Greeks were always quite happy to see the“progress” being made by the Jewish students who hadseemingly abandoned the road of Torah and had embracedCongregation B.H.H.
