A Messianic Jewish Guide to Hanukkah Barry Rubin & Family Hanukkah, the Feast of Dedication, or the Festival of Lights, is not the Jewish alternative to Christmas. Although it is celebrated in the winter, this festive holiday describes a story all its own--of faithfulness to God, of bravery against all odds, and of the rededication of a defiled Temple. For Jews, Hanukkah is a time of bright lights, of delicious smells, of delightful singing, presents, and games. It is a time to proudly remember our heroes and wonder at the miracles of God. Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah--himself a Jew--also celebrated Hanukkah as recorded in John 10:22-- "Then came Hanukkah in Yerushalayim [Jerusalem]. It was winter, and Yeshua was walking around inside the temple area, in Shlomo`s Colonnade." (John 10:22) But Hanukkah is not just for Jews! Hanukkah means "dedication," a theme of significance for Jews and Christians - so why not look into this fascinating holiday? Discussing its historical background, its modern-day customs, its deep meaning for all of God's people, this little booklet covers all the how-tos! Recipes, music, rules for playing dreydel and prayers for lighting the menorah are all included! 32 pages. ISBN: 1-880226-83-9
