#5530 - Hanukkah

The stamp’s bright picture depicts two children lighting a menorah on the last evening of Hanukkah. A celebration lasting eight days and eight nights, Hanukkah is one of the most well-known Jewish holidays. The most common tradition involves the lighting of the menorah, a nine-branched candelabrum, but other festivities include the partaking of oil-based foods and the use of the dreidel, which references the miracle of oil. The story tells of the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, in which a quantity of oil used to light the menorah was said to only be enough for one day. Miraculously, the oil lasted eight days, during which the Jewish peoples were able to create more and keep the eternal flame lit. Scott 5530 Hanukkah
