    1. Hanukkah An 8 day Jewish festival.

    2. Our objectives • To know some key facts about a Jewish festival. • To understand that the Jews believe God performed miracles. • To understand that light is representing the presence of God.

    3. What do we celebrate? Christmas Easter Birthdays

    4. What is Hanukkah celebrating? An eight-day festival celebrating a time in history when the Jews won a battle against the Greeks to practise their religion freely.

    5. Why does it last for 8 days? • To celebrate, an oil lamp was lit in the temple. There was only enough oil to burn for one day - but miraculously it burned for eight days. • This is why the Hanukkah festival lasts for eight days and why light is the main item in the celebration. • How long do our celebrations last? • What was the miracle?

    6. What is a Hanukkiah? They light a candle each night on a special candle holder called a Hanukkiah or Menorah.

    7. Why do the Jews use light to celebrate? They believe the light shows that God is with them, like when the light lasted for 8 days in history.

    8. When is Hanukkah? December Do the families do anything special at Hanukkah? • Children play with a spinning top called a dreidel. • Families eat special potato cakes called latkes and other oily food to remind them of the importance of the oil lamp. • Presents are also given at this time.
