Chanukah, the eight-day “festival of lights” is celebrated by lighting with traditional Chanukah Menorah, 'Chanukiah', for eight nights, with special prayers, and by eating
fried foods such as potato latkes and jelly donuts.
Chanukah celebrates two things:
1) A miracle in which one day’s worth of oil burned for eight days
2) The victory of the Jewish freedom fighters over the Syrian-Greek forces that tried to wipe out Judaism in the second century B.C.E.
At MakomNY, we always have lively and joy-filled musical Chanukah celebrations. This year we will join for Chanukah at the following festive gatherings:
