For "new: Albanians: HANUKKAH

For all those "new" Albanians who view Frosina's website, here's a very brief description of the Jewish celebration of Hanukkah which begins tomorrow tonight at Sundown.


Tomorrow night marks the start of Hanukkah, which means beginning at sundown, menorahs will be lit, gifts exchanged, dreidels spun, and latkes made. Let our Guides help make your family's festival of lights a special one.

Lighting the Menorah

Lighting the menorah (also called a hanukkiyah) is the most important part of celebrating Hanukkah. It reminds us of the miracle of the Hanukkah lights, when only one day's worth of oil burned for eight days after the Maccabees reclaimed the holy Temple.
