The First Night of Chanukah (Jewish)
Tonight is the start of the Jewish holiday of Chanukah, which commemorates religious freedom, national pride and the 2nd century BCE victory of the Maccabees over the Greeks. Jewish people mark this eight-day holiday by lighting the menorah, an eight-branched candelabra, and eating foods fried in oil such as potato latkes and jelly donuts.
