Did you know Hanukkah is significant because when a Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed, a small jar of oil was found and lit. There was only enough oil to burn for one day, but miraculously, the oil burned for 8 days until new oil could be found. That is why Hanukkah is known as the Festival of Lights, which is celebrated for 8 days and nights. The Jewish Student Union reminds everyone that tonight, we light the candles for night 2 of Hanukkah.
