Jerusalem

- by Melanie Douthit

This week's theme: Happy Chanukah!

This week finds us in the midst of the Festival of Lights. After the victory of the Maccabees over the Greeks and religious oppression, it was necessary to rededicate the Temple in Jerusalem. After searching, only one flask of oil could be found with which to light the Menorah. This flask, enough for one day, lasted for eight. In celebration of these events, for eight days, the candles of the Menorah are lit. Happy Chanukah!
