Happy Hanukkah from the team at J&M Jewelry! We hope the holidays are filled with love and laughter for you and your family.
Hanukkah or Chanukah is an 8-day Jewish celebration that commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, where according to legend Jews had risen up against their oppressors in the Maccabean Revolt.
Each night, starting on December 12, one candle will be lit on the menorah, until all 8 candles are lit, ending on December 20 this year. The ninth candle is known as the 'shammash' or servant candle, which is used to light the other candle.
