Hanukkah: It’s NOT Jewish Christmas

Sunday, December 6, 2020

A virtual service led by Elaine Bowen and Lori Mirkin-McGee.

Even though they occur at the same time of year and involve an exchange of gifts, Hanukkah is not, and never has been, the Jewish version of Christmas. A minor holiday of the Jewish calendar, Hanukkah celebrates the second dedication of the temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean revolt as well as the miracle of one day’s lamp oil lasting for 8 days. We will share an interpretation and experience of Hanukkah through our UU lens.
