PLAYLIST below

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 Romans, 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.
