Happy holidays everyone Hanukkah- a festival of lights The Jewish festival of Hanukkah commemorates an historic event in the search for religious equality. Called the Festival of Lights, it is celebrated for eight days, be- ginning Dec. 24 of this year, with the lighting of the Menorah. The Menorah is a candelabrum consisting of eight branches or sections. Each night an addition- al candal is lit to celebrate the miracle that occurred in the Holy Temple. According to tradition, the light in the Temple was to burn continuously. But in ancient times the Seleucld Greek army destroyed many of the sacred vessels in the Temple and pillaged the holy oil. With oil sufficient to last for •only one day, the Temple lamp burn- ed for eight days until reinforce- ments and replacements arrived. For Jews this holiday is observ- ed to recall the heroic efforts of the Maccabees who fought the enemy in defense of the Temple and for the right to retain and main- tain the Jewish Faith. The word Hanukkah means dedica- tion. On this joyous holiday Jews rededicate themselves to the ideals of religious freedom and the brave self determination of the hero- ic Maccabees. And in keeping with 2**A A*A* the festival spirit, gifts of mod- est nature are exchanged among children and family members each night when the candles are lighted. The Menorah has become a univer- sal symbol in Jewish tradition. Although its origin is more than 2,000 years old, it constantly re- minds all of the never-ending bat- tle against bigotry, hatred and oppression The light of the Menorah chal- lenges the Jew never to allow dark- ness to reign, or defeat and humil- iation to prevail. It is a re- minder to keep the light of faith and the glow of human dignity al- ways burning. The Maccabees were the heroes of Hanukah. The translation of the word Maccabees is hammer. A hammer beats, forges and fashions. During the Festival of Hanukkah, Jews per- ceive themselves as the Maccabees, people who forge a life of decency and honor. The blaze of the Menorah is an affirmation that light of re- ligious freedom shall always pre- vail. The Jewish community of Keflavik is having a Hanukkah party for all Jewish personnel and their guests. Jewish guests from Reykjavik will also take part in the "pass the dish" dinner. Make your favorite dish and join in. The party will be held at the Community Center. Contact Rochelle at 4756 or 6226 in order to coordinate dishes.
