Example text

There is one place for each night of Hanukkah. And there is one place for a candle called the shamash. Shamash means helper in Hebrew. The shamash is used to light all the other candles. On the f irst night, a candle is put in the farthest right place of the hanukkiah. Someone lights the shamash and uses it to light the f irst night’s candle. Everyone says Hanukkah prayers as the candles are lit. Then the shamash goes back in its place. The two candles burn all the way down. 35 On each night of Hanukkah, more candles go in the hanukkiah.

They cleaned up the Temple. Then they rededicated the Temple to God. They made the Temple holy again for God. 29 Judah Maccabee lit the menorah and brought back the light. He called for that day to be a new holiday. He named the holiday Hanukkah, the Hebrew word for dedication. He commanded the Jewish people to celebrate Hanukkah every year. Some people say another miracle happened on that f irst Hanukkah. They say that Judah Maccabee could f ind only a single pot of pure oil for the menorah. It was just enough oil to burn for one day.

33 The Hanukkah menorah is called a hanukkiah. It has places for nine candles. There is one place for each night of Hanukkah. And there is one place for a candle called the shamash. Shamash means helper in Hebrew. The shamash is used to light all the other candles. On the f irst night, a candle is put in the farthest right place of the hanukkiah. Someone lights the shamash and uses it to light the f irst night’s candle. Everyone says Hanukkah prayers as the candles are lit. Then the shamash goes back in its place.
