Hanukkah commemorates the victory of the Jews over the Syrian Greeks in 164 BCE, and is celebrated by lighting a hanukkiah (or menorah) for eight days, eating latkes, and playing dreidel.  At Beth Chaverim, we follow several traditions developed over the years.  Our annual Chanukah party features latke contests, liive music and games.  During Shabbat, we ask our congregants to bring their own Hanukkiahs for a congregational candle lighting.
