Hanukkah: The 1st Day

Posted: December 05, 1988

Hanukkah - the Jewish Feast of Lights - got off to a joyous start in Philadelphia yesterday with the annual lighting of the world's largest menorah. The ceremony, near the Liberty Bell on Independence Mall, included traditional music, dancing and other festivities. Hanukkah, which lasts eight days, is the Jewish commemoration of the rededication of the Temple by the Maccabees after their victory over the Syrians.
