Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish students and colleagues celebrating the Festival of Lights over the following eight days. The festival marks the uprising of Jews of Judea who revolted against oppression. It is common at this time to give gifts to children and the celebration focuses around eating traditional foods and the lighting of the Menorah, eight-branched candelabrum, on each day of Hanukkah until it is ablaze with light on the 8th night.
