Download Our Hanukkah Guide

November 19, 2013 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit

As the days become shorter, we welcome the “Festival of Lights,” the holiday of Hanukkah. Hanukkah is technically considered a minor Jewish festival, yet it ranks with Pesach and Purim as one of the most popular Jewish family holidays. The inspiring story of Hanukkah, the rituals which emerged from it, and the special Hanukkah games and foods combine to help raise Hanukkah to a level of adoration.
