One of the most important ritual associated with Hanukkah celebrations are lighting of candles. Each night throughout the eight days, a candle is lit on the menorah, an eight-stand lamp. The reason for the Hanukkah lights is not for the lighting of the house within but rather for the people outside the house. The menorah is placed on the window for the passers-by to see it and be reminded of the holiday’s miracle. The traditional food prepared on Hanukkah include fried potato pancakes (latkes) and jelly doughnuts are eaten to commemorate the importance of oil during the celebration of Hanukkah. Find below the messages and greetings to share on this auspicious Jewish festival.
