In 2018, Hanukkah begins at sundown on Sunday, December 2 and lasts until sundown on Monday, December 10. Hanukkah, which is Hebrew for “dedication,” is the Festival of Lights, which commemorates the victory of the Maccabees over the Syrian Greek army, and the subsequent miracle of rededicating the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and restoring its menorah, or lamp.  The miracle of Hanukkah is that only one vial of oil was found with just enough oil to illuminate the Temple lamp for one day, and yet it lasted for eight full days.
