Hanukkah in July

Hanukkah is a time to remember a great miracle. When the Maccabeees defied all odds to survive and in returning to some normalcy found themselves in need. A great miracle happened and the oil lit the temple and their lives for 8 days.

Let’s face it, we all need a sense of miracle in our lives right now. For that reason we ask everyone to join in on July, 25th to celebrate Hanukkah in July!

Why do this?

  • Hanukkah is on the eve of Kislev 25 (usually in December), and in the Northern Hemisphere winter. But right now it’s winter in the Southern Hemisphere, so let’s celebrate!
  • Because the world needs more hope, and together we can light the way.
  • Because you want to spend a fun night with your family and/or socially approved friends.

This is simple and we encourage you to make your experience unique.

To help you get started, here are a few ideas:

  • Go grab your Chanukiah (Menorah) from the shelf and fill it up with all 9 candles
  • Make some latkes, or buy them from the store because those are good too
  • Pick up a dozen of your favorite donuts
  • Share on social media how you experienced Hanukkah in July, sharing a miracle you’ve recently experienced or are hoping for. Use #hanukkahinjuly and #myjewishlife

Happy Hanukkah!
