Hanukkah Begins Today at Sundown!

cup In honor of the beginning of Hanukkah, I thought I would post a fun trivia quiz so we we can test our knowledge of this holiday!

Hanukkah Trivia Quiz

1) What does the word Hanukkah mean?

2) How long does Hanukkah last?
3) When is the menorah lit? (as an added bonus, how many candles are in the menorah?)
4) Where should the menorah be placed?
5) Which nation ruled over Israel at the time of the Hanukkah story?

6) Potato pancakes are a traditional food eaten during this holiday. What are they called in Yiddish?
7)  During which Hebrew month is Hanukkah celebrated?
8) What are the gifts called that children traditionally receive (in remembrance of the coins made by the new Maccabee state)?
9) What chant is traditionally sung during the lighting of the Menorah?
10) From which direction to which direction are the Menorah candles lit?


Hanukkah Trivia Answers

1. Re-dedication (referring to the Second Temple reclaimed by the Maccabees)
2. 8 days
3. After sunset (9)
4. Near a window
5. Syria
6. Latkes
7. Kislev (on the 25th day)

How’d you do? I hope you had fun and learned something in the process.

To all my friends celebrating this meaning-filled and happy time, I wish you joy and peace now and in the years to come!

Peace out.
