Hanukah

  1. 1. How To Celebrate Hanukah By Talia. Miller
  2. 2. Before I Start Hanukah is a Jewish festival celebrated at about the same time as Christmas. It lasts for 8 days and on each day we (usually) get a present. We eat good food as well and go to first and last night parties. It is a major Jewish celebration celebrated world wide.
  3. 3. Miracle Of HanukahMany years ago one of our many great temples gotdestroyed by the Greeks. So we decided to get the templeback. A man called Judah Maccabee assembled his troopsand went out to battle. They won. Later while repairing thetemple they realised they didn’t have enough oil to lighttheir everlasting lamp. The everlasting lamp is continuouslylit to honour God. Miraculously they found an oil jug but itstill didn’t contain enough oil.
  4. 4. Miracle Of Hanukah ContinuedStill, they lit the lamp. It was a miracle! The lamp stayed litfor 8 days giving just enough time for more oil to be made.The reason it takes long time for more oil to be made isbecause it has to be pure. That means that to make the oliveoil you have to get one drop from each tree.
  5. 5. Ingredients A Hanukiah (also known as a menorah). Candles (preferably the special Hanukah candles). Matches (any type). A prayer book. Good food A dreidel Hanukah gelt
  6. 6. Hanukah gamesThe main game is the dreidel game. It is played by spinningthe dreidel like a spinning top. The aim of the game is toobtain all the Hanukah gelt that is in front of you. The lettershin means you put one coin in. the letter gimmel meansyou get it all. The letter nun means that you get nothing.And the letter heh means that you get half of the coins.
  7. 7. Food For HanukahBecause of the miracle of Hanukah we usually eat oily food.Some of that food is:-jam doughnuts-latkas (also known as hash browns)-chocolate gelt (also known as Hanukah gelt)
