Hanukkah is a special time in Israel and a great time to visit Jerusalem. Every night for 8 days each family light a unique candelabrum, the nine-branched menorah or hanukiah, and place it on the window sill for everyone to see.
As you walk the ancient streets of the Jewish quarter in Jerusalem you can see the candle lights reflect from every corner adding a magical feeling to your visit.
According to tradition, the light of a small candle can fight the big darkness around you. So imagine hundreds of candles lit up together in a celebration of lights and festivity.
