Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is celebrated in Israel and around the world by Jewish communities. On the first day of Hanukkah in Israel, families gather to light the first candle on the menorah, a special nine-branched candelabrum. This marks the beginning of a joyous eight-day celebration commemorating the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem. The holiday is filled with traditional foods like latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (jelly-filled doughnuts), as well as games and gifts for children. It's a time for coming together, expressing gratitude, and celebrating hope and resilience.
