Welcome to History.com’s History of Hanukkah, I’m bring you this in addition to the Chanukah site because there are some very interesting sections here that weren’t on the other site, in particular, the Amazing Feats section.
The sections you’ll find here are:
Watch Video – here you will find four videos to watch on Hanukkah. They are the History of Hanukkah, Ask a Rabbi: Hanukkah, Hanukkah Foods: Latkes, and Hanukkah Foods: Jelly Doughnuts. I recommend having a snack if you like Latkes or Jelly Doughnuts because those videos made me very hungry!
History of Hanukkah – here you will find a brief summary of the history behind Hanukkah.
Hanukkah Traditions – here you will learn all about the Hanukkah traditions of the Menorah, Latkes, The Dreidel, and Sufganiyots (jelly doughnuts).
Amazing Hanukkah Feats – in this section you will learn about two amazing feats accomplished in honor of Hanukkah. The first is The Tallest Menorah, and the second is the Biggest Pile of Jelly Doughnuts.
This site gives you a little bit of a different view of Hanukkah, and as such I thought it would be interesting to share. Check it out today!
