WINTER 2014
A supplement to The Jewish Standard and Rockland Jewish Standard

Happy Chanukah!
Beth Janoff Chananie
This year, Chanukah begins at
sundown on Tuesday, December
16. Remember last year, it fell the
same time as Thanksgiving and we
celebrated what became known as
Thanksgivukkah!
The Festival of Lights celebrates
the miracle of the Maccabees fighting to save the Jewish people from
the Syrians and the miracle of the oil
in the temple lasting for eight days.
So, just take a few minutes
while looking through this special
Chanukah Gift Guide and think

about what you might like to receive as a gift and use that as an
idea for what others might like.
Buying a menorah is a gift that
lasts a lifetime and truly brings
light to one’s home. Over the years
my family has amassed quite a
collection from traditional, to golfthemed, to ornate. I display them in
several places in our home.
Donations are the gifts that keep
on giving --- consider making one to
someone’s favorite charity – locally
and/or Israel. Also, when buying a gift
for a child, remember to buy an extra
to donate to one the many community

Putting Chanukah
in Jeopardy!
By Shammai Engelmayer
It’s time to play Jeopardy!
Because of technical difficulties, there’s only one category on the
board today, Lights. Actually, it’s all
about a Jewish religious holiday, but
we couldn’t get any of our judges to
agree on how to spell it—Chanukah,
Chanukkah, Hanukkah, Hannukah,
Hanukah; it’s enough to drive a person to drink (but not enough so that
person couldn’t tell the difference between Haman and Mordecai, or is that
Mordechai?).
Besides, the festival was originally
known as Lights, so it’s okay.
Here goes. Lights for 10 points, “2
equals 8.” Remember, you have to form
your answers in the form of questions.
No one? The question is: “How
many miracles does Lights celebrate?”
You’re shaking your head no. What’s
that? You say Lights celebrates one miracle—the cruse of oil enough for one
day that burned for eight days? That’s
not what’s written here, so let’s ask the
judges. (Brief pause.)

Well, here’s what the judges have to
say: If the only miracle celebrated on
the Festival of Lights—okay, for convenience’s sake we’ll call it Chanukah, as
long as we don’t have to spell it—If the
only miracle celebrated on Chanukah
was that cruse of oil, Chanukah would
only be seven days long, because
there’s nothing miraculous about a
one-day supply of oil burning for one
day. Finding that cruse of oil in the first
place is the second miracle, or was that
the first miracle?
We continue. Lights, err Chanukah,
for 20: “Not if anyone’s asleep.”
Again, no one? Are the buzzers
working?
Here’s the question: “In a household
in which one person lights the lights for
everyone, can that person still do so if
he or she comes home late?”
The answer: “Not if anyone’s
asleep.” If anyone’s asleep, that person
wouldn’t be covered by the lighting. I
guess that’s why so many people prefer
lighting their own lights.

toy drives for a less privileged child.
This year’s Chanukah Gift Guide
features some beautiful jewelry, children’s gift items, accessories, cookbooks, (fill in as we get more stuff),
and gift ideas, including massages
and spa indulgences, all from local
merchants.
So here’s to Chanukah.. and
think about the words from the song
“Chanukah Oh Chanukah” --- And
while we are playing, the candles are
burning bright, one for each night,
they shed a sweet light, to remind us of
days long ago…And here’s to making
new memories too!

Chanukah for 30: “One, and another one if it’s dark.”
No one? Gosh, and they tell me
these are the easy ones. The question
is, “How many candles actually have
to be lit each night?”
Now, as I understand it—I come
from Canada, so I don’t understand
much about anything anyway—as I
understand it, there’s a dispute about
that between two rabbis named
Shammai and Hillel, but we go with
Hillel because Shammai almost never
gets it right. And Hillel says you add
a candle every night, so that there’s
one on the first day and eight on the
eighth say. Shammai had it the other
way around, but both have multiple
candles.
And that’s what people do on
Chanukah—except that, technically,
just lighting one candle each night is
sufficient.
But there’s a catch (and I hope I’m
getting this right, judges): You can’t
use that candle to see by, or read by,
or anything, so if it’s the only light in a
dark room, you’ve got a problem. So
you light a second candle, separated
from the first in some way, and that
one you can use to see by.
I’m beginning to understand why
no one is hitting the buzzer. Why don’t
SEE CHANUKAH PAGE 4

Chanukah
FROM PAGE 3

we just skip to the Daily Double? Here’s
the answer: “They’re the reason for the
half-hour burning time.”
Well, that really stumped you. The
correct question is: “Who were the people of Tadmor?”
The rule is that the Chanukah lights
have to burn for at least a half-hour,
“until the marketplace is empty.” It
usually took a half-hour after sunset
for the marketplace to empty out
because the people of Tadmor sold
kindling, so they stayed open an extra
half-hour in case someone got home
and found they were out of kindling
for a fire.
Well, no one won any money today.
But we do have some Chanukah gelt,
made out of chocolate.
If you people at home want to check
our questions and answers, the judges
tell me you can find it all in something
called the Babylonian Talmud tractate
Shabbat 21b.
Now I have a question of my own: If
Chanukah celebrates a light that burned

continuously for eight days, why not
just get one candle that burns for eight
days and light it just the one time?

Anyway, that’s all the time we have
for tonight. Good night, and good
light! Uh, Lights!

Check local Judaica, specialty shops, and local book stores for
Chanukah gear and books for infants and young children. Here
Kylie Frances Chananie, 6 weeks, left, and Rebecca Shara Jay, 14
months, don Chanukah outfits and prepare for the holiday with
board books and stuffed animals.
