Hanukkah means "never lose hope" Hanukkah commamorats the victory. And the miracles that did hashem. I don't know other meanings for the holiday, but for me, Hanukkah is a very special holiday, For me, Hanukkah is to remind the Jewish peoples the miracles, and the hope we had many years ago. We educate our children during the Hanukkah when we actually celebrate the holiday. In school, there are teachers who teach about the macabeem and the hashmona'im And about the miracles, the menorah. HAVE A HAPPY HANUKKAH Slomit
