Hanukkah - which means dedication in Hebrew - is observed around the world by lighting candles in a special menorah called a Hanukkiah each day at sundown for eight days, with an additional candle added each day. The event celebrates the recapture of the temple of Jerusalem by a small band of Jewish rebels lead by Judah Maccabee.
The faithful gather around the Menorah, a nine branched candle, and light one candle stick each night in remembrance of a miracle, the ancient story of when the Jews took back their temple from the Syrian Greeks.
Other Hanukkah traditions include spinning a dreidel, a four-sided top, which partially commemorates a game that Jews under Greek domination are believed to have played to camouflage their Torah study, and eating foods fried in oil, such as latkes, pancakes of grated raw potatoes, and jelly doughnuts. Later, Katzman directed a lesson on the history on Hanukkah to the children in the audience.
