Hanukkah or Chanukah?

Known as the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is observed by lighting a Menorah which holds 9 candles. One for each night of the holiday, and an extra light called a shamash—meaning guard or servant. The shamash is traditionally placed higher than the others and is lit each night since it’s used to light all the other candles.

Mark your calenders—Hanukkah begins at sunset December 11th.

Chag Sameach!

Thanks to todd, store designer west hollywood, for photos of their windows which included a Menorah made of blok crystal candleholders.
