Hanukkah Celebrations in Los Angeles for Kids and Families 2017!

Hanukkah or Chanukka is the Jewish Festival of Lights, which starts on December 12th this year, and lasts eight days. The Hebrew word Hanukkah means "dedication". Jewish families light candles or burn oil in a candelabra called a menorah for the eight days of Hanukkah, adding one candle each day.
