Hanukkah: A Festival of deLights

Hanukkah_Festival_of_deLights"Hanukkah: A Festival of deLights" features Jewish families from a variety of backgrounds including rabbis, scholars of Jewish history, authors, artists, and actors William Shatner and Lainie Kazan, sharing their personal Hanukkah experiences, along with archival film and images. These remembrances illuminate the holiday just as the eight candles on the traditional menorah have been lit each evening through the centuries.

While Hanukkah is in so many ways a Festival of “de-Lights” with inviting aromas, uplifting melodies, fun celebrations, and nightly gifts for the children, as many in the program describe it can be challenging for some families to celebrate in the open as a minority, with a menorah lit in the window as has always been tradition. As the program concludes, viewers understand that Hanukkah is more about presence than presents. It is not “Jewish Christmas,” but closer to Thanksgiving for a people grateful for coming through the darkness time and again.
