Sunday, December 18 – The Holiest Place: Celebrate Hanukkah in our Light Festivals during Advent

Hanukkah begins next Wednesday, and as a part of Sedona Interfaith Fellowship’s Advent light festival celebrations, this Sunday participants will honor Hanukkah, allowing the beauty found in Judaism to grace their lives.

Hanukkah, while being a minor festival, has become honored over time, and is a festival of lights, in which menorahs are seen burning everywhere, acknowledging the miracle that occurred in 165 B.C., when Judah Maccabbee led a small band of rebels in reclaiming Jerusalem and the temple.  Upon lighting the temple menorah for their rededication, the Jews discovered there was enough oil for only one day, but the lamp miraculously burned for eight days.

The Fellowship’s Christmas Eve service will be held at Sedona Creative Life Center on Saturday, December 24, at 6:30 p.m., with a potluck gathering afterward.
