Hanukkah (2:35) Films on Demand

Hanukkah is the most popular Jewish holiday in the United States.  It falls on a date determined by the Jewish calendar, but is often very close to Christmas, making for a natural association between  the two holidays.  

It's also called the Festival of Lights and commemorates the rededication of the temple by the Maccabees in the second century BC.
