What is the Meaning of Hanukkah?

Hanukkah is an important Jewish festival that honors the liberation of Jerusalem and the rededication of the Second Temple at the start of the Maccabean revolt during the Seleucid Empire in the 2nd century BC. Hanukkah has its roots from the Hebrew word “Hinuch,” which means “to teach.” Hanukkah is also referred to as the Festival of Lights, which is celebrated for 8 days in the Jewish population.

The most sacred book of the Jewish faith is the Torah. This holy book explains creation, the story of Abraham and his people, the Exodus from Israel, the Ten Commandments, wandering of the Israelites in the desert, and the story of entering the Promised Land. Passages from the Torah are often read aloud during the Hanukkah celebration.

When is Hanukkah?

The Hebrew calendar determines the dates of the celebration of Hanukkah. The celebration starts on the 25th day of Kislev and ends on the second or third day of Tevet. Note that sunset is the start of the Jewish day.

As such, the celebration of Hanukkah is inconsistent if we use the standard Gregorian Calendar. It could start anywhere from late November to late December. This is a winter holiday.

Formally, Hanukkah is a minor holiday. However, the lively festivities made Hanukkah popular, helping it attain a major cultural significance akin to Thanksgiving or Christmas. I wish you joy, comfort, and peace this Hanukkah season.
