Happy Hanukkah

Happy Hanukkah

I’ve always been curious about the many different ways in which Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights, faith, and hope is spelled. If there are any Jewish readers who know the answer to the many spelling variations, could you please fill us in on that history? My guess is that the variations may reflect the diverse Jewish communities around the globe as well as the differing branches of Judaism. At any rate, Bonnie K. Goodman has a very informative post on her blog, profiling current news about Hanukkah 2009 as well as the history of the festival. You can read about it here. Happy Hanukkah (or is it Chanukah? Et al) to all of my Jewish readers!
