Chanukkah In Israel

Location: Jerusalem, Israel
December 17, 2017

An Ultra-Orthodox Jewish man lights candles for the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah in Jerusalem’s Mea Shearim neighbourhood on December 17, 2017. Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple. The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a ‘hanuckia’- a nine-branched candelabrum, with one additional light being lit on each night of the holiday.
