Hanukkah is probably the most popular Jewish holiday celebrated by local communities all over the world. The main idea of the holiday is to show the manifestation of light over the darkness and purity over the adulteration. The most important attribute of the holiday is a nine-branched candelabrum serving as a source of light. In the course of celebration you may take a glimpse of the most important Jewish holiday and taste the very special dishes served only at this time, such as latkes and sufganiyot.
