Happy Hannukah!

The Jewish festival of Hannukah begins tonight. In anticipation of this fun Jewish holiday – I say fun, since we get to light fires, eat lots of donuts (mmm…donuts), and play games – I have compiled a list of interesting links for your reading pleasure.

 

It’s a Miracle

 

A cruse of oil which lasted for eight days, and a holiday was born. Read the full story here.

 

And click here for a modern day Hannukah miracle..of sorts.

 

Virtual Lighting

 

For those who are afraid of fire, you can simulate the lighting of a Menora here.

Read this heartwarming story about how some Houston Cub Scouts are helping Jewish soldiers in Iraq celebrate Hannukah.

 

On Song

 

Feel like singing some Hannukah tunes? Click here for the lyrcis to your favorite Hannukah songs, including I Have a Little Dreidel (I’m not trying to compensate for anything) and Adam Sandler’s The Hanukkah Song (Parts I and II).
