Hanukkah 2016 Home Decorations for Family Fun

 

In Buckhead Atlanta, Hanukkah 2016 Home Decorations for Family Fun included Menorahs for each person to light and games with a Dreidel, or Sevivon in Hebrew, for the family to play together.  

What is the meaning of the holiday called Hanukkah? The Hebrew word means "rededication". The Temple desecration by the Syrians was reversed in 165 BC when the Jews cleaned and repaired the Temple to be used for the worship of one Supreme Being.

 

Once the rededication was in progress, the Eternal Light was re-kindled. The comemeration of the Freedom of Religion Victory is successive kindling of eight lights in the Menorah.

 

The Menorah is a special candle holder that has eight candle spaces for the eight days of Hanukkah and one extra called the Shamash that is used as the "assistant" to light the other candles.

 

 

The Menorah light is meant to be seen from outside the home so lighting near a window is an important part of the holiday observation.

 

 

 

The Dreidel games were used to disguise Torah Study which was often forbidden. Lessons were taught using the symbols on the Dreidels.



In America now, small chocolates in the shape of coins are used as the prizes during the games.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The special food for Hanukkah for Jews all over the world is the Latke. Recipes anyone? In Israel, the special jelly doughnut called Sufganiya is the Hanukkah specialty food. 

 

Whatever your family celebrates, the key work is FAMILY. May everyone feel love and care within their individual homes and towns.

All the best - Lynn

Thanks for sharing the Hanukkah history with us. I don't know much of the history and you taught me something I didn't know. 

Thank you also for taking the time to enter the challenge.
