Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah – the Festival of Lights! This eight day Jewish Holiday commemorates the re-dedication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Macabbean revolt (~2oo BC).
Aside from the family observances of this holiday, there is a local celebration that looks like a really nice way to start the season.
Farmers Market at 3rd and Fairfax – today from 2:30p-5p; fun activities and a Menorah lighting ceremony and Hanukkah sing-a-long at 4:30p.
Hanukkah starts tonight and runs through December 28th. Happy Hanukkah!
