Now to rededicate the temple, they needed oil to light the menorah but they only had enough to keep the flames burning for one night. And here’s the miracle: The oil lasted for eight days. We light the Menorah every year with 8 nights to celebrate freedom, miracle and the need to keep on fighting for our freedom in a hostile world. To light! חג חנוכה שמח. “באנו חושך לגרש…לציון נצחוןהמכבים ונס השמן!
