Chanukah: the EIJM’s selection, Part 2

A playlist for all the 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.
Here is a small selection of songs to listen to... and to sing along!

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 Hanukah’s miracle: the small quantity of oil burned for 8 days, 8 days to enlighten and purify the Temple of Jerusalem.
