Chanukah : the musical selection of the EIJM, 1st part

A playlist for the whole family !

During the Festival of Lights that lasts 8 days, children’s favorite holiday, we light candles, we eat latkes and candies, we give and receive presents, and we sing songs.

Chanukah or “inauguration” in Hebrew celebrates the re-inauguration of the altar in the 2nd Temple of Jerusalem.

According to the tradition, after the pillage and soiling of the Temple by the Greeks, the priests found a small flask with enough oil to enlighten the Temple for just one day.

But then happened the miracle of Chanukah : the small quantity of oil burned for 8 days, 8 days to enlighten and purify the Temple of Jerusalem.
