Hanukkah, the Feast of Dedication or the Festival of Lights, is not the Jewish alternative to Christmas. Although it is celebrated in the winter, this festive holiday describes a story all its own - of faithfulness to God, of bravery against all odds, and of the rededication of a defiled Temple. Yeshua the Messiah - himself a Jew - also celebrated Hanukkah as recorded in the Gospel of John. So why shouldn't Christians follow his example and embrace this joyous time? Here Barry Rubin and his family share the history and traditions of Hanukkah for all who wish to learn. This book includes the story of Hanukkah, holiday songs, recipes, rules for playing the Hanukkah games and even how to light a Hanukkah menorah.
