Hanukkah fest in Odessa

On December, 15 – 23, on occasion of Hanukkah fest celebration, Menorah will be placed at Primorskiy blvd in Odessa

The South-Ukrainian Jewish communities regional union will organize placing of Hanukkah fest attribute – Menorah – at Primorskiy blvd near the monument to Duke de Richelieu on December, 15 – 23, 2006.
Hanukkah is celebrated with excellent food, exchanging gifts, and lighting beautiful menorahs (special Hanukkah candelabras) filled with brightly colored candles. Unlike some of the other Jewish holidays, which require intense spiritual reflection or elaborate preparation, it is easy to celebrate.
Many Jewish holidays commemorate events invested with historical and religious meaning, and Hanukkah is no exception. Hanukkah means "rededication," and it commemorates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem after its desecration by foreign forces. The celebration also reaffirms the continuing struggle to live by God's commandments and to lead Jewish lives.
