Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday that celebrates the re-dedication of the Temple of Jerusalem.
It is celebrated for eight days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar.
One of the most popular symbols of Hanukkah is the menorah. A menorah has nine candles:
one for each night of Hanukkah, and an extra one called a shamash, which is used to light the other candles.
The Menorah is a symbol of Chanukah, and is often used to commemorate the holiday.
The Menorah is a candelabrum that has nine branches, one for each night of Chanukah.
It is often used to commemorate the holiday because it is said that when the oil for the lamps in the Temple ran out,
there was only enough oil for one day, but it lasted for eight days.
