Light up for Hanukkah

With the participation of the mayor of Girona, Mr. Carles Puigdemont, included within the activities for Hanukkah at the Museum of Jewish History

Thursday, December 22,
Call de Girona

Hanukkah, or Festival of Lights (lit. "dedication") is celebrated on the 25th of Kislev. It commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple after the victorious Maccabean uprising aganist the Greeks. The symbol of the festivity is a 9-branched candlestick which is lit each evening from the shammash, the central candle. In the evenings, family festivities are held, with sweet doughnuts, levivot and sufganiot, and small presents are given to children.

This year, in the Jewish History Museum, we will light up the Hanukiah of the Museum in a special event in which will participate Mr. Carles Puigdemont, mayor of Girona and president of Patronat Call de Girona.
