Happy Chanukah - Inspirational Photography & Fine Art Landscapes by Josiah Friberg

During this special holiday season of the year, I'd like to wish all the sons and daughters of Abraham a Happy Chanukah.


For those of you who may not know, Chanukah celebrates the miracle God did when He caused a one day supply of holy oil in the temple to last for eight consecutive days. The name "Chanukah" or "Hanukkah" means "dedication." It was during the time of Judah and his father Mattathias that the holy temple had been desecrated, and the Jews were able to reclaim their temple and rededicate it to God as the "house of God" on earth. In summary, Chanukah celebrates the day the temple was rededicated to God and the miracle of the oil that God did during those eight days. The miracles, of course, are the small jar of oil that burned for so long and the small group of Maccabees who fought a mighty king and won. Ever since that first Chanukah, Jews just like the Maccabees have fought for the right to pray to God and live as Jews.

Once again, HAPPY CHANUKAH to all the children of Abraham and Israel.
