Join B’nai Torah MetroWest’s Cantor Kate Judd for “The Secrets of Chanukah,” an adult ed session. We all know the story of Chanukah, right? Maccabees, reclaiming the Temple, eight days of oil, lighting candles and eating latkes? But there’s a lot about Chanukah that you may not know. What are the Five Books of the Maccabees? Why aren’t they in our Tanakh (Bible)? Why did Rabbi Shammai want us to start with eight candles and subtract one each night?! What are the rules about where to put your chanukiah (menorah), and how do they change when it’s a time of persecution of the Jewish people? And just why do we really celebrate Chanukah, anyway? Is it as totally unconnected with Christmas as we’ve been taught? Come read and study all about Chanukah with Cantor Kate and unlock some of the mysteries of this wonderful holiday.
