Recount the story of Hanukkah with time-honored Hanukkah recipes, such as latkes and challah (plus fun Hanukkah cookies featuring the Star of David), and history-inspired crafts. "Hanukkah" means dedication in Hebrew and the holiday pays tribute to the group of Jews who found for their right for freedom. Also known as the Festival of Lights, we help you celebrate the holiday with Hanukkah decorations to brighten your table and door, take you through the history of Hanukkah with our traditional songs and a timeline of the rebellion of the Maccabees, and share party ideas so you can enjoy the holiday with family and friends. If you want to teach your kids more about Hanukkah, let them help you with a Hanukkah craft, such as a Star of David candle or a pretty blue-and-white banner for your door. Want to send a holiday note to someone? Check out our Hannukkah cards, which use traditional colors and symbols of the holiday -- the dreidel, menorah, and more -- to commemorate the holiday.
