Hanukkah

Hanukkah is a Jewish festival commemorating the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire. It is also known as the Festival of Lights. Sun, Dec 22, 2019 – Mon, Dec 30, 2019

During Hanukkah, on each of the eight nights, a candle is lit in a special menorah (candelabra) called a ‘hanukkiyah’. There is a special ninth candle called the ‘shammash’ or servant candle which is used to light the other candles. … Most Jewish families and households have a special menorah and celebrate Hanukkah.

Game of Dreidel :

What You’ll Need

  • Playing pieces (plastic chips, pennies, small candies, buttons, peanuts in the shell, etc. may be used) for each person
  • A dreidel for the group

How to Play

Distribute an equal number of playing pieces to each person. Begin by having each of the players put one or two pieces into a common pot. Take turns spinning the dreidel and taking the actions determined by the letter you spin:

Nun: The player takes nothing. 
Gimel: The player takes all.
Hei: The player takes half. 
Shin: The player puts in.

The winner is the person who collects all the playing pieces.

You may also try playing the dreidel game with a charitable twist: Everyone puts some money in the kitty, and the winner gets to choose where to donate it.
