WHY: Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is a Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication during the second century B.C. of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, where according to legend Jews had risen up against their oppressors in the Maccabean Revolt. The festival is observed by lighting the candles of the candelabrum with nine branches, also known as a menorah. One branch is typically placed above or below the others and its candle is used to light the other eight candles. This unique candle is called a shamash. Each night, one additional candle is lit by the shamash until all eight candles are lit together on the final night of the holiday.
