Description:

Hanukkah: An eight day Jewish festival of lights that commemorates the victory of the Maccabees over the Syrians. This year it begins at sundown on December 8. 

Reflection: 

The miracle, of course, was not that the oil for the sacred light - in a little cruse - lasted as long as they say; but that the courage of the Maccabees lasted to this day: let that nourish my flickering spirit.” – Charles Reznikoff, "Meditations on the Fall and Winter Holidays"
