Do you know why Chanukah is celebrated for eight days? It is not as simple as you think. In this engaging learning session, we will explore the historical, national, and spiritual reasoning behind the rabbis creating an eight-day festival, marking a political victory, a religious/national revival, and a spiritual renewal in the dead of winter. Let's explore how these insights can shape our intentions and practice over the eight nights of Chanukah.
