What is Chanukah? This holiday is the Jewish eight-day event, wintertime “festival of lights,” celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers and fried foods. The Hebrew word Chanukah means “dedication,” and is thus named because it celebrates the rededication of the Holy Temple. Also spelled Hanukkah (or variations of that spelling), the Hebrew word is actually pronounced with a guttural, “kh” sound, kha-nu-kah, not tcha-new-kah. Information came from Chabad.org .
This event celebrates Chanukah, which includes singing performances, live music, dancers, face painting, jugglers, food, and grand menorah lighting ceremony. After sundown the grand menorah will be lit along a blessing over the candles. Bring your family and friends down to celebrate this event.
