Promontory Holiday Celebrations – Eight Days of Hanukkah

On December 16, 2014, the first candle on the Hanukkah menorah will be lit.  Jewish families around the world will begin saying prayers and celebrating.  Hanukkah, or Festival of Lights, begins on the 25 Kisleve of the Jewish calendar.  The holiday celebrates two miracles, the first being the Jewish military victory and the second the miracle of oil that would supply the Temple. 2

For eight days families will celebrate. The menorah holds nine candles, one for each of the eight nights and the additional candle is to light the others.  It is a time to celebrate with family and friends, enjoy traditional food, games and gifts for one another, each being part of the celebration of Hanukkah. 


Promontory families and their children will also gather together to celebrate Hanukkah such as the Mendelson and the Meshorer family.  At Promontory’s Kids’ Cabin, children will be able to celebrate all the festive holiday traditions in the Holiday Celebrations Camp throughout the month of December.
